- Did you ever want to work on a social or societal challenge with a global community?
- How about learning cutting edge human centered design and design thinking skills while working on a real world issue?
- Do you want to learn more about Social Entrepreneurship, OpenIDEO and the Impact Hub Vienna - an inspiring workspace & member community that drives innovation through collaboration?
Well, there is no better way to do so but joining OpenIDEO Meetups. OpenIDEO is an open innovation platform where you can join a global community to solve big challenges for social good. Local meetups are a format organized by selected facilitators (us from Creativity Gym Vienna) to benefit from face to face interaction and foster the local social entrepreneurial community. The challenges - online on the platform and locally in meetups - are solved by applying design thinking principles. This is a great way to build and train your creative skills while contributing to a pressing issue.
The next Meetup is a 101 to this format dedicated to introduce Meetups to interested people. Come and learn more about how it works & the next challenge we tackle, experience the run down in a mini-challenge and mingle with interesting like-minded people.
There are 20 places, first come first serve by signing up via Eventbrite!
Who should come?
We are looking for people that want to experience the topics stated but especially are eager to contribute solving big real world issues. We are looking for people who are committed to join our Meetups on a regular and volunteering basis for a whole challenge (three 2 hours sessions spread over 3-4 months) and are keen to take over some mini-tasks (e.g. uploading results to homepage). Is that you? Then you should definitely join the 101 Intro and learn more about this opportunity.
We are excited to bring OpenIDEO to Vienna and to tackle some pressing challenges with you.
