GCY at IDEO for Social Impact Lab

img_04031Today, Global Citizen Year was invited to IDEO for an hour of brainstorming on a project-specific design challenge facing the organization.  We came with 2 big questions:

1.  How might Global Citizen Year engage volunteers and supporters to build a movement?

2.  What products/media would support movement building?

In a little under 45 minutes we placed over 100 ideas on the wall using sticky notes.  The ideas ranged from building a storytelling Facebook application to placing Global Citizen Year “tuck-in” inserts into language textbooks.   Now it’s time for us to turn those ideas into impact.  A huge thank you to the team at IDEO!
