Inspiration

The Inspiration phase is where we all collect existing examples which relate to the challenge question. This exploration helps us learn more about the challenge and informs our upcoming ideas for the Concepting phase. We asked you to consider what’s happened on OpenIDEO over the last year as a way to help us determine where to head in from here, with a special focus on impact.

Sometimes, we are so cut off from parts of the world in need that we don't feel the need to help. Just by making these stories visible and accessible to people, we can start to create empathy and awareness around the issues
