Following on from our ‘How can we transform Neighbourhoods in Britain together? Challenge this year, we thought you may be interested in another innovation challenge,  CityCamp Coventry, an event and challenge calling for ideas that answer the question, “How can we use digital technology to help make Coventry an even better place to live?”

There are only 12 days until the event, a 3-day city-based unconference and ideas fest to stir up and prototype ideas to make Coventry an even better place to live. The event will include a mix of speakers, attendee-led group discussions, and idea prototyping

Part of the core of CityCamp isn’t just the ideas that are created and developed during the event itself – but making sure these ideas find their legs in the community post-CityCamp excitement. With this in mind, the winning idea at the end of the event will receive a bespoke package of support and resources to make sure they have what they need to develop into reality.

There are still tickets available, so if you are interested in attending, register here.

In addition to registering to attend the event, you can also submit your ideas to improve Coventry in the newly relaunched Simpl Challenges – a platform designed to help local public services, councils and organisations to run challenge events to develop solutions to local and social problems.  Developed in partnership with Coventry City Council and Coventry University, CityCamp Coventry is the first Challenge to appear on the site.

There are already 19 ideas submitted to the CityCamp Coventry Challenge page which include our winning GeoVation Challenge idea Community Payback Visibility.

So please, check out CityCampCoventry for more details.
