The OpenIDEO Austin Chapter (launched in December, 2017) provides a forum for our community to find solutions collaboratively to local and global challenges through design thinking. We are a volunteer, grassroots effort. The Chapter is a dynamic expression of Compassionate Austin!
The key to design-thinking is empathy. Compassion is empathy + action. In Austin we have created a unique model by being both a Compassionate City and an OpenIDEO City Chapter. We are the 1st city in the world with this innovative “mash-up.” Through design-thinking for social good, we strive to create a city powered by empathy, compassion, and social innovation!
