Feature Prototype: Sharing Action StoriesOctober 31, 2012, 11:53PM
Last year, during our Impact Challenge, we asked folks to collaborate on coming up with ways in which we might increase social impact with OpenIDEO. One of the winning ideas was Sarah Fathallah’s OpenREALISATION concept. Part of Sarah’s idea was was to surface stories in which OpenIDEO has inspired people to make a change in their lives or put ideas into action. To date we’ve received some great stories – from people getting involved in their local farmers’ markets on the back of the Local Food Challenge to a group of students prototyping an outreach ultrasound initiative from our Maternal Health Challenge.
Now we're prototyping a new feature as we explore how we might inspire and celebrate members of our own OpenIDEO community who are making strides towards impact. Our Share Your Story prototype feature will provide an initial avenue, for those of you who are transforming ideas into action, to let us know so we can help share your stories with our OpenIDEO community. There’s also an opportunity for you tell us how the OpenIDEO community might help you further.
The Share Your Story buttons can be found across our site on all phases of completed challenges. They’ll take you to our Share Your Story form. You’ll be able to give us some details about your action plus submit images and videos to bring your story to life. It’s also a chance for you to let us know how the OpenIDEO community might help you further – whether it be spreading the word, joining your initiative, contributing via crowdfunding or other avenues for participation. Once submitted, our team will review your action post and select the best stories to showcase on the challenge Realisation phase – so keep an eye out for updates!
Bear in mind that this is a prototype – so we’ve hacked it together pretty quickly in order to learn about how we might collect and celebrate stories of action from our community in a more integrated way in future. If you’ve got suggestions as we continue to develop our efforts – swing by the User Forums and chime in on the Action Stories Forum that we’ve set up.
So let's hear those stories!
We look forward to sharing them and
inspiring others to turn ideas into action.
