Brainstorming with the OpenIDEO Team in San Francisco this week
We're excited to be growing our small, global OpenIDEO Team with two new additions. OpenIDEO community high flyer, Vincent Cheng and IDEO Consumer Experience Design Lead, Robert Suarez have come on board to take our team to seven committed collaborators. This week we're meeting up in California to hatch plans on making OpenIDEO an even greater place to socially innovate, together.
Our E-Waste Challenge has switched to its Concepting phase and exciting ideas are emerging. Check out our tips for Concepting which explores themes that we're keen to encourage folks to develop their ideas around. There's also a Brainstorm-in-a-Box toolkit which you can download and collaborate with friends and colleagues. Give an OpenSTORM a try!
The Youth Employment Challenge is even deeper in its Concepting phase – with a diverse range of innovative ideas at play. Come post one of your own to spark discussion or join a conversation to help strengthen others' concepts. Collaboration is how we roll – so join in and be part of the journey in supporting young people to succeed in the world of work. And we're extending the Concepting phase to allow more time for folks to mix and mingle in their creative thinking!
