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.

The Pass It On concept in the bone marrow challenge stuck with me. I really loved the idea. When later the OpenIDEO team launched the This Inspires Us initiative, I saw an opportunity to celebrate change: participatory business cards.

My first meeting with OpenIDEO was during the Jamie Oliver Challenge. I was blown away by how so many amazing ideas came together and inspired others. And I was hooked. So, in the category great moments, this challenged deserves a spot :)

At the beginning of the realisation phase for GreenBook (now known as +U), Sony and IDEO organised a great workshop to really bring together several disciplines and sketch out the future of the GreenBook app.

One of the main events leading up to the final phase of Open Planet Ideas was build hour. A power hour of collaboration on Twitter, Facebook and the website, where some OpenIDEATORS could put forward their concept and get input from the community.
