OpenIDEO Meetup Vienna

OpenIDEO is a social innovation platform for social good. We are a global community that draws upon optimism, inspiration, ideas and opinions of everybody to create solutions to some of the world's toughest challenges

OpenIDEO Vienna Meetup is a meetup organized by local facilitators (us) to benefit from face to face interaction. Meetups are for design thinking enthusiasts who want to make a difference in their community. We'll start by following openIDEO's model for enacting social change and decide where to go from there. It's entirely up to us as a group.

Why a Meetup?

People in cities around the world have started OpenIDEO meetups in their communities. This is Vienna's first! Design thinking works best with collaboration, fresh faces, and different approaches. It works best when people from all different backgrounds come together. We think it would be a great way to build our design thinking skills, makes some new friends and have a lot of fun.

What's the commitment?

We plan one meeting about every other week during each OpenIDEO challenge.  You are encouraged to participate for the entire challenge, to best understand the process flow and framework.  But we understand that things come up!  New attendees are always welcome and don't fret if you have to miss a week! Look out for general information evenings for new people.
