Social Innovation Camp — The Ideas

The word is out. We’ve chosen the ideas that will be developed at the Social Innovation Camp, 4th-6th April 2008. We had a great time on Friday last week going through the 70 or so ideas with the advisory board and thanks to them for helping us decide on the six that will be developed at the event.

The ideas are:

Barcode Wikipedia

A site for storing user-generated information – such as carbon footprint, manufacturing conditions and reviews — against a product, identified by its barcode number.

Enabled by Design

A resource for anyone looking to make adjustments to their lives, be it as a result of disability, injury or impairment.

Personal development reports

An online system that supports young people to identify their personal skills and qualities.

Prison visits

A tool to support the families of prisoners coping with the experience of being apart from a loved one.

Rate My CV

A site for helping jobseekers using Web 2.0 tools, with a special focus on the needs of migrant workers.


Freecycle meets Street Car: a stuff club.

Can you help develop any of these ideas? Sign up to come along.
