Change My Wold in 1 Minute, the IdeaScale community launched by the World Cerebral Palsy Alliance, is nearing the end of its idea and vote phase. In celebration of World CP Day, the community gathers ideas on how to improve the lives of those living their lives with CP. Submissions can be written or in video form, but here’s the catch – it must take the reader (or viewer) one minute or less to take in your idea!
With hundreds of ideas already submitted, the community is now open to voting. Competition is heating up, as a People’s Choice Prize of $500 will be awarded to the submitter of the top voted idea. Of course, all ideas will be reviewed by a panel including the most expert of experts – individuals living with CP and their families.
The current campaign is the third annual challenge of it’s kind. Through this campaign the World CP Alliance is able to promote education and awareness. But they ask that audience to do more than just listen – they want everyone to join in the charge. If everyone could donate just 1 minute, how much change could we see?
This year long event culminates in teams presenting actual solutions to the problems and ideas laid out in the World CP community. Year’s past have seen some incredible work, and this year’s challenge will certainly result in more amazing designs. Until the end of October, you don’t have to be an expert, you don’t have to be able to build a solar powered wheelchair, or a an exercise program designed for people with CP, all you have to do is join the community and vote! Visit the campaign here to see all of the already submitted ideas and vote on your favorites. Don’t miss any ideas, log in regularly as ideas are still being submitted. The People’s Choice most popular idea might be yours!
