open design to transform empathy into action

Issues of great concern, especially in healthcare and education, surround and confound us.

And yet, we live in an era in which each of us has access to more technical knowledge and resources than ever before. Can we use social, mobile and maker tech to transform empathy into action? Can we pool our "cognitive surplus" towards improving social good? Can open design help us "design" a new way forward?

We think so. Join us.
