OpenIDEO Bengaluru Chapter : Community Catch Up #001

Jayanagar, Bengaluru.


OpenIDEO Bengaluru Chapter's first catch up.


The Community Dinner marked the first community catch up for the OpenIDEO Bengaluru Chapter. A group of ~20 individuals from different parts of the city came in to be the part of the first meet up.


Though small in number, the meet up had a diverse set of design professionals joining in from MNCs, startups, student community, design catalyst networks, etc.


The meet up started with a ice breaker activity where the attendees introduced themselves to each other followed by:

  1. A quick introduction of OpenIDEO

  2. OpenIDEO Bengaluru Chapter

  3. OpenIDEO Challenges

  4. A quick introduction to the Bengaluru outpost event

  5. The road-map ahead for getting the outcome of the Outpost Event.


The outpost event for the Bengaluru Chapter was a Design Challenge on 'How might we radically improve access to, and quality of, sexual and reproductive health education and services for young people?'


Owing to their analogous past experiences, quite a few of the participants were able to bring in considerable number of valuable pointers which made the event successful and insightful.
