Social Innovation Camp is an experiment in creating social innovations for the digital age.
The web and related technologies hold huge potential to change some pretty fundamental stuff. Discovering what people really need, meeting people who’ve had personal experience of something they’d like to change and building the technology that can help - that's what Social Innovation Camp (SIC) is all about.
SIC are looking for the best ideas that use the web to change something that matters.
Through unusual, creative events SIC bring together talented software developers and designers with social innovators to build effective web-based solutions to real social problems. By bringing together these two groups – technology and need – SIC are creating a community of practice where people can experiment, discover, prototype and become advocates for using social technology as a driver of positive social change.
