The Social Innovation Camp is coming to Scotland! The Social Innovation Camp is an experiment in using social technology for social change.
“From Friday 19th to Sunday 21st June 2009 at the Saltire Centre in Glasgow, we’ll be attempting our usual trick and bringing together some of the best of the UK’s software developers and designers, together with those at the sharp end of social change. They’ll have just 48 hours to build some web-based solutions to a set of social problems – from back-of-the-envelope idea to working prototype, complete with software.
But first off, we start with a call for ideas: we want to find the most exciting ideas for how the web could change stuff that really matters. You can enter your idea when our call opens on the 30th March. And remember you don’t need to be based in Scotland to get involved.
We’ve got a new part of our website dedicated to Social Innovation Camp Scotland where you can read all about how it’s going to work over here.”
I am going to be in Berlin working with T-labs over those dates! Disappointed! Still very exciting this will be going on so close to home :)
