Call for ideas
This is the winning team from this year’s Social Innovation Camp. The Team developed a website called MyPolice - a tool for members of the public to give feedback, express thanks or tell their story about their experiences with the police and offer suggestions for improvements.
Calls for ideas involve asking a wide range of people to suggest ideas for strategy, projects, experiments, grantees or solutions to particular problems. There are a range of organisations which call for ideas: Social Innovation Camp, for example, launches a call for ideas to receive suggestions for projects in advance of its weekend long events; Innovation Exchange use calls for ideas to solicit ideas for potential projects; and the European Commission launched a call for ideas for promoting intercultural dialogue across civil society in Europe in advance of the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue in 2008.
