Participants engaging in the IDEAS4GE Innovation Challenges generate real IDEAS to support Solution-builders committed to advancing real change through impactful solutions. We believe that multi-stakeholders from diverse lived experiences, expertise and most impacted by the solution need to be at the solution-building table. Solutions generated through the respectful collaborative engagement of diverse perspectives are liberating, more impactful and more sustainable.
Solution-builders (SBs) are excited to "Put IDEAS into Action" and to participate in the next level of engagement on the IDEAS4GE Multi-stakeholder Collaborative Workspace.
Putting IDEAS into Action
SBs Digital platform Analytics
In the collaborative solution-building workspace SBs share their areas of interest and expertise to establish solution priorities.
Supported by the digital analytics on the IDEAS solution-building platform SBs follow the five-step process, engage in collaborative brainstorming and develop a shared understanding from diverse perspectives to gain consensus on the solution of focus.
