Amnesty Challenge concept Detainee Support Net by Jason George
An thriving week at OpenIDEO as we plough through two challenges, seeking to harvest social good. The Amnesty Challenge has just switched to the Evaluation phase after the energetic, collaborative refinement of our shortlisted concepts. Now it's time to join in on evaluation where we all get the chance to chime in against specific critera to help select winning concepts to support human rights.
Meanwhile the Vibrant Cities Challenge is flourishing in its Inspiration phase with abundant examples and insights on restoring struggling cities. We called upon our recently featured collaborator, Charlotte Fliegner from Melbourne, to compile a Challenge FAQ for those who are new to the challenge and are wanting some pointers on where to start. With more than a week to go on the Inspiration phase, we hope you're still spreading the word on this engaging topic which continues to feature diverse global examples.
