OpenIDEO's Nathan gets inspired during the recent meeting with our Vibrant Cities challenge sponsor, Steelcase.
Records have been shattered in the spirited Vibrant Cities challenge! An epic 894 inspirations were generated by our energised community and now we'll be switching to proposing fresh ideas in the ever-active Concepting phase. Check out these tips we've put together to get you started. You might even grab friends and use our Brainstorm-in-a-Box toolkit to get those creative juices flowing – plus here's even more guidelines on brainstorming. Big ideas, small ideas, wild ideas – they're all welcome! And let's think innovatively about how ideas might be funded – think bottom-up, top-down and side-to-side.
Last week we were super-psyched to announce the Amnesty Challenge winners. As always, these stellar concepts stood on the shoulders of much collaboration so it's congrats to all of you who participated on this challenge to support human rights. Check out the Collaboration Map for an interactive look at the winners + collaboration.
We're thinking of having an OpenIDEO Hackday – and we'd be keen to hear your thoughts on what would make it a success. Chime in over on our Hackday Forum to share your ideas. Let's get this figured out, together!
