Busy times! We're cooking up a brand new challenge that will be launched very soon – with new features in the mix. Meanwhile we're close to 250 inspirations on the Maternal Health and Mobile Technology Challenge. Only days left to come post yours and then we'll synthesise all the brilliant insights and move into the exciting Concept Phase. There's been some great global examples of story-telling, nutrition, maternal experiences, including fathers and more.
We caught up with Oxfam's Digital Campaigner Ian Sullivan, who's joined us in posting inspirations and commenting on others throughout the challenge. "Maternal health is a really vital issue, as women and babies are still dying unnecessarily – that needs to change," notes Ian. "We need great ways to get people thinking and acting on these problems." He's been impressed with the zeal and scope of insights from of the OpenIDEO community.
We're looking forward to onwards collaboration from our ever-diverse community – especially welcoming our new Latin American OpenIDEATORS. Come join a conversation and let's cross-pollinate perspectives!
