Tokyo student OpenSTORMERS share their reflections.
It's been an inspiration and iteration filled week at OpenIDEO! The Vibrant Cities Challenge continues with gusto – and has recently broken our OpenIDEO Inspiration phase record of 608 posts! There's been a brilliant span of examples and insights and we'll be working hard to create challenge Themes for next week's launch of the Concepting phase. We super-psyched about the ideas which will be sparked by this rich collection of collaborative inspiration.
The Amnesty Challenge has also been action-packed with short-listed concepts continuing to be discussed, iterated, refined, updated. Not long till we announce winners – but remember that the high-flyers will rest on the shoulders of everyone who's participated in this challenge to support human rights.
We've had a number of universities participate on OpenIDEO of late – from the classroom to student charters and brainstorming groups. Check out these reflections from Tokyo and the forum pages which contain info, tips and resources especially for students and faculty. And if you're getting active with folks from your university – swing by and share your story.
