Commitment by

OpenIDEO

In 2015, OpenIDEO committed to solving sustainability and resiliency issues with the launch of their Accelerate program, catalyzing collaboration for sustainability innovation through Open Innovation Challenges that include events, education, and digital experiences. OpenIDEO plans to host at least ten Challenges related to sustainability over the next three years, bringing its online platform, existing community, and design expertise to address global challenges and incorporate design thinking into the participants’ sustainability innovation efforts. The program’s challenges will host a variety of topics ranging from sustainable food systems and water management to carbon neutral cities. Additionally, Accelerate will launch a dedicated website to enable collaboration among innovators working to address today’s sustainability challenges, ultimately connecting skilled volunteers and mentors with meaningful projects and enabling people to share inspiring stories.
