From January to March this year we ran a project for Nesta called Jailbrake to try and create new tech based ventures that reduce youth offending and reoffending. Although we gave it a different name It was essentially based on the pattern of a Social Innovation Camp and the result — yet again — was that the methodology worked.
One of the best things about the weekend — which you’ll see in the video — is the help we got from young people. So many events are remote from the people who will ultimately use the services being discussed but that definitely wasn’t the case at Jailbrake. Katee deserves a special mention for managing to pull that off.
