Since 1996, I've designed and crafted my own line of furniture in Bern, Switzerland. In 2017, I pivoted from home eco-products to guiding HCD workshops and Design Opportunities for the Circular Economy. The latest projects are based in inclusive dialogues to allow teams and diverse stakeholders to imagine and co-create their future businesses, organisations and academic institutions to embrace innovation as open collaborative processes and Circular Design Guide methods. In July'17 , I co-founded an OpenIDEO Tribe at Impact Hub Bern with the help from Impact Hub members and founders.
I really like the way you have pulled it together and show where your offer can expand into helping people to take care of themselves and their loved ones. Even as your offer has shown a strong beginning via your website and Vimeo offer it's clear that it can scale with plenty of options to grow and serve. I look forward to seeing what you do next Anthony with this great offer which is already helping people via your Caregiver Smiles Summits. Thanks for your good work!
I like your integrative approach. Bringing people into positive generating experiences around food is so natural and universal. Great!
I see from the messages below that some graphics and pictures are coming. Can you find some local young filmmakers to help you capture these experiences? It would be great to see the experience and how you will amplify it. Looking forward to seeing more details and how you can spread the good idea across communities.
I like the social co-coping as co-creation simplicity of this idea. It could be done geographically anywhere at low cost with little infrastructure. With inputs from professionals, previous caregivers and the cared for it could potentially self-organise within local competence centres. The down side is the additional transportation and time required to bring and pick-up but also the logistics of the caregivers secondary activities when taking a break. The total system should be considered as part of the social- knowledge- time + place management and exchange potentials. Perhaps you could partner with someone who has already mapped these influences on what is a viable way of desceminating information, empathy and switching engagement partners so that caregivers get the needed break + support.
