Social Innovation Camp – Take Two: Shortlist Announced!

Last week’s Social Innovation Meetup was the Hub (hee hee geddit?) of much nail biting and excitement, as the six ideas taking part in the second ever Social Innovation Camp were announced. Drum roll please….

Feast your eyes on this little lot:

Going Postal

Useful Visitors


Visualising Community Need

Good Gym

The brains behind each of the shortlisted entries were invited to take to the stage to talk about their idea and the inspiration, as well as share any other interesting tit bits that they might like to add. Vegsy’s James seemed very keen on proclaiming his (verging on obsessional) love of the common-or-garden spud! ; )

Once the excitement had finally died down, there was another surprise in store, as an unexpected twist was added to the proceedings. It was announced that there would be a wild card entry, which was up for the public vote – how very X-Factor?!?

The wild card entries were:


One Click Organisations

Prepare to die

Carbon Co-op

Voting closed at midnight last night and today it has been announced that Carbon Co-op will be the lucky seventh entry to join the SI Camp crew.

Now that we know which entries have made it through the wilderness, the search is on for techie and creative campers to take each idea through to the finishing line. Have you got what it takes? If so, get in touch and sign up here.

I’d just like to say a big CONGRATULATIONS to all of the shortlisted entries! Well done and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how you get on over the weekend.

See you soon SI Camp-ers and good luck!
