An ambitious project to map schools on a global scale
A team embarks on an 8-week residency that results in something entirely new. Watch what happens when UNICEF Innovation engages with Red Hat® Open Innovation Labs.
The UNICEF team arrives in New York to kick off their Open Innovation Labs residency. This chapter highlights the team's excitement and anxieties: Early exercises interest some, worry others.
The team travels to Colombia to meet with project stakeholders. Feedback changes their direction, two projects become one, and Red Hat and UNICEF hit their stride working together.
The team is back in New York to present the final proof of concept and recap the work they've done the last 8 weeks. We learn about the next steps for the project and how contributors can get involved.
Software shouldn't just be for the corporations to earn tons of money. It should basically be here to help everybody in the world.
The team is here in Bogotá, Colombia to meet with UNICEF Bogotá stakeholders as well as members of the Colombian government to understand more about their data usage and needs surrounding children, poverty, socioeconomic data, and risk factors.
The idea is to get a kind of engine starting and running so that the open source community can just do it on their own.
