OpenIDEO is an open innovation platform where people from all corners of the world collaboratively tackle some of the toughest global issues through launching Challenges, programs, and other tailored experiences.

A Challenge is a three-to-five month collaborative process that focuses attention on the topic and creates a space for community members to contribute and build off each other. This approach is modeled on IDEO's design thinking methodology.

BridgeBuilder 2019 Challenge: #PeopleontheMove

BridgeBuilder, run in partnership with GHR Foundation, invests in building and repairing unique bridges between people, organizations, issues, and beliefs to promote meaningful engagement and sustainable, community-led change. Over the past two years, the Challenge has sourced hundreds of radical new approaches to solve pressing global issues at the intersections of peace, prosperity, and planet. In our 2019 Challenge, BridgeBuilder now seeks ideas that address the urgent and emergent needs of a global population directly impacted by a lack of peace, prosperity, and sound environmental conditions—people on the move.

The Cybersecurity Visuals Challenge

How might we reimagine a more compelling and relatable visual language for cybersecurity? Too often, visuals in the cybersecurity space reflect surface-level understanding influenced by sensationalist media. We see pictures of locks, white men in hoodies, or green 1s and 0s that do little to convey the reality of this complicated, critically important topic. With this Challenge, run in partnership with the Hewlett Foundation, we hope to elevate imagery that better represents the cybersecurity space in an accessible and compelling manner.
