The Story of the Barry IdeasBank – community open source innovation

I am very proud of having created what is believed to be the UK’s first community IdeasBank – an incredible tool with the potential to transform community regeneration and how the public sector can improve the delivery of its services.

It demonstrates the potential for open source innovation or crowdsourcing for a local community.

The idea was developed thanks to support from social enterprise charity UnLtd. and the Royal Society for Arts Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).

Here’s the story behind the Ideasbank as shared in a guest blog I produced for the RSA.
