Sep 13 to 15 Weekend Eventbout Social Innovation Camp
Social Innovation Camp brings together software developers and designers with people who understand a social problem to help build web and mobile solutions to social challenges. We think the web and related technologies hold huge potential to create change in many different ways: how people hold those in positions of power accountable; who they rely on to provide the services they need to live healthy, happy lives; or how they make a difference to something that affects them.
But for any of this to happen, we have to understand what people really need and start building the technology that can help – which is what Social Innovation Camp is all about. Through unusual, creative events we bring together talented software developers and designers with social innovators to prototype effective webbased solutions to real social problems.
