While collaborating online allows us all to build global solutions, local Meetups help build social bonds and form new collaborations as well. We’re looking for a small number of people to join us in person to have some fun, practice ‘design thinking’, meet each other and start social connections for social good around the collaborations on OpenIDEO. Join us to help form specific community goals locally for our group, whether it is to test out some of our favorite ideas from past challenges over the next four months or to have a deeper discussion and share it back with the global community.
