Brannon Veal - It's great to have a submission from an OpenIDEO Austin Chapter member for this Challenge. You bring lots of experience and an innovative approach to tackle this critical issue in our city. Exciting!

Hi Marilyn Turkovich .  As Founder of Compassionate Austin (one of approximately 400 self-designated compassionate cities/communities that are part of the Charter for Compassion International (CCI) Compassion Cities Campaign), I am so excited about this project! CCI could mobilize compassionate cities throughout the world to engage in design thinking to address this challenge and offer local solutions. In addition, I am currently working to organize an OpenIDEO Austin Chapter. I believe there is a wonderful crosswalk that we can create between the compassionate cities and the OpenIDEO city chapters. This is a fantastic opportunity to catalyze and enhance global education efforts for youth in emergency situations!
