Youth Employment Challenge DNA of a Job concept by Matt Cooper
With lots of our global OpenIDEO community on holiday just now, we've decided to extend the Applause phase on both our E-waste Challenge and Youth Employment Challenge. The Applause phase is a chance for folks to catch up on all the goodness posted in the Concepting phases, join conversations and cheer on your favourite ideas by hitting that Applause button. It also helps us choose a shortlist of concepts to proceed to the iterative-gymnastics of the Refinement phase. So if you've been offline working on your tan or catching up with friends and family – swing by and check out our challenges and be part of propelling great ideas forward.
And speaking of holidays – are you heading back to university shortly? Check back on this inspiring post about classrooms getting involved in OpenIDEO. Plus there's the OpenIDEO + Universities Forum with more tips and tricks. Hoping to see more of you join us real soon!
Lastly we've got a tasty Realisation update from the Local Food Challenge – ideas in action and growing. Plus exciting news from the Vibrant Cities Challenge – with lessons on failing early and failing often.
