Wow – so much going on at OpenIDEO that we've barely had time to check the pulse and post Currents! Causing major palpitations this week is our brand new Local Food Challenge. We've partnered with the Queensland Government in Australia and the IDEAS Festival 2011 to explore a closer connection between local food production and consumption. We're hoping you'll join us in feeding the future with your fresh thinking. Help us close the gap between rural food production and urban food consumption to create more sustainable, happy and healthy communities.
The Bone Marrow Challenge is nearly half way through its Concepting Phase and is charging along in the crusade against cancer. The Maternal Health and Mobile Technology Challenge is about to announce its concept shortlist and you'll be able to comment, applaud and follow beat-by-beat as the finalists fine tune their ideas.
With so many avenues to participate, the only question remaining is – who else will you tell that may join us in the collaborative pursuit of social good? Spread the word.
