As you continue sharing ideas on openideo challenges we have an extra challenge for you.
you are encouraged to..
design like nature..
think like your audience..
make with your hands..
think for the future..
As you dream up innovative new ideas think about how nature has solved that problem first. We are surrounded by smart processes and natural systems that have helped species thrive for centuries. We challenge you to create a biomimetic solution that promotes life, doesn't waste natural resources and restores and/or contributes to other life forms.
We should always be leading with empathy. Humans are extremely complex beings with a wide range of social, economic and physical circumstances. We challenge you to take your research offline. Dig even deeper and observe responses to problems. Learn something about how people struggle and try solving the issues they face. Do thoughtful interviews and experiments. Make sure you're making something that fills a void while promoting positivity and inclusion.
Don't just post ideas with inspirational images and sketches, If your idea is physical actually make it. Try it out in miniature form. Map out your service. Test out your materials and movements. We challenge you to use and create sustainable products. If you think your idea is purely digital, challenge that. Think again. Make something with your hands with things found around you.
Do your ideas stand the test of time? Are you thinking for now and future generations? What if resources we have now were no longer available? Then what? Do you know how to start from scratch? (Use the previous challenges to inform a new process). We challenge you to post ideas that are so far out, too magical to make sense in our world today.
Queue your inner child and future family friends... You've been challenged.
