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.
