In the Land of Creativity, a storm is brewing. The guilds of storytellers, painters, musicians and many more creativities are gathering around. They’ve sent out their ambassadors to all corners of the world, and now are waiting for a call to action.

Arjan - our concepts seem to be complementary in many ways and really like the idea of creating visualizations from the "negative" space of what is not there, so to speak.

A first aid kit is a collection of supplies and equipment for use in giving first aid, and can put together for the purpose.  The idea of this first aid kit is to help people, who are living in the hard-to-access areas, to signal danger.

However we choose a method of signalling, citizens will need to feel confident and knowledgable in sending a signal.

Arjan built upon the Concept and gave lots of valuable lnput!

Use the connectors between communities as a conduit to build trust and revenue. Merchants, salespeople, distributors, transportation providers could all serve as a supply chain for a set of new business opportunities.

What if we can enable people who live in hard-to-access areas to gather and send information, by giving them the information and tools to do so before violence erupts? Building on several inspirations and ideas, Enabler Cards explore that question.

People's Intelligence automates the collection of relevant human rights and humanitarian information from hard to access areas and verifies it using crowdsourcing and “dumb” mobile phones.

Hi Arjan, still discovering some of the opendideo features, such as this easy way to add people to virtual teams. Looking forward to some more online collaboration. All the best, Christophe

Could we set up and facilitate a phone service/network to enable young people to discuss and listen to the situation they both face, with fellow young people they feel are from a different group, or are ‘on the other side’ of the conflict/situation?

Some organizations with strong ties to the outside world have staff on the ground in hard-to-access areas. Let's give these disparate networks of well-positioned, better-connected individuals a platform to Raise a Red Flag when trouble is observed!

Arjan has already been very helpful in assessing the concept's viability and in identifying parallel solutions.

Before talking about change, even do a great action: A (paperbased) tool to ask people if they see the street get better or worse in a year, ignites the brain, sense of home belonging, inspires to act and connects Ngo/Gov/Local data needs!

If you want to change the world, you might want to start with the next generation of leaders. And as OpenIDEO is popular in several schools, maybe there's one that can start the Masters of World Benefit program.

Wow, what a detailed an great idea. You might want to check out the babycenter website. You might already know it, but they have something similar. They send out a weekly newsletter that actually follows the development of your baby, and then your newborn. It provides info on developmental steps, what to look out for and what to expect. See https://www.babycenter.com/

Very cool. Would love to turn that into a version that does the same for dads :)

By the way, in Germany, each expecting mother gets a "mother pass", in which all her details are recorded, including examination and test results relevant to the pregnancy. She's asked/required to keep the pass with her at all times. Every time she visits a doctor or medical service, but also in case of an accident, medical professionals have direct access to all the information they need. It is still quite old-school, as it is a little booklet in which info is (hand)written. But sometimes low tech works best.
