Hi all - was excited to see this specific forum.
We are a couple of Australian public sector design thinkers and are coming to the UK. We are offering 2 scholarships for UK-headquartered NGOs for our new course. www.smartpublic.net/thecourse.html
SmartPublic course will give you both theory and hands-on practical experience in driving public innovation. We will cover how to research, visually map and ideate for communities, and then put this into practice in a simulated real-world problem. We hope we will see you either in London or come to the Edinburgh Fringe join us for breakfast in the morning and a show in the evening :)
We are also collaborating on a book which when complete will be titled SmartPublic. We want to write a book about how organisations can accomplish amazing things by exploring, designing for and working with the public in a new way. So we are looking for case studies that really stand out as truly 'amazing' - if you can recommend a project you know of we are keen to hear about it.
