Social Innovation Camp embarks on its next call for ideas…

As you all know by now, Social Innovation Camp was the event that gave birth to Enabled by Design. It helped transform my idea from a few scribbles on a piece of paper to a social enterprise on a mission. Loads of exciting things have happened since the first SI Camp back in April 2008, and none of it would have been possible without the phenomenon that is SI Camp.
And now SI Camp has put out their call for ideas for the second installment of this fun and inspiring event, which I highly recommend!
For those not familiar with the concept of SI Camp, who better to explain it than Anna Maybank, the director of SI Camp herself:

“From 5th – 7th December, we’re bringing together some of the UK’s most talented web developers and designers with those at the sharp end of social change to build six web-based tools to change the world. Anyone can enter an idea to be developed at the event. The competition closes on Friday 7th November 2008″

To mark this auspicious occasion I agreed to talk a bit about my experiences of SI Camp and the inspiration behind Enabled by Design.


If all of this sounds like just your cup of tea, drop SI Camp a line to enter your idea. Whether you’re a geek, designer or ideas person, I really recommend getting involved! And remember the closing date for all ideas/entries is 7th November 2008 so while you’ve got about a month it comes round quickly trust me – so best get your skates on (and don’t forget your thinking cap)!
