Social Innovation Camp is coming to Scotland in June! This is your chance to submit ideas and take part in a fantastic weekend of creating new ideas that use the web to do something good. This year the theme of social isolation.

Here’s what they say;

“From 17th-19th June 2011 at Informatics Ventures in Edinburgh, we’re bringing together some of the best of the UK’s software developers and designers with those at the sharp end of social problems.

They’ll have just 48 hours to build some web-based solutions to a set of social problems – from back-of-the-envelope idea to working prototype, complete with software. But first off, we start with a call for ideas: we want to find the most exciting ideas for how the web could change stuff that really matters.”

You can find out how to submit an idea on the official website. The guys behind it are also doing a mini tour of Scotland – you can find all the dates here .

They are holding two pre events in Edinburgh and Glasgow next week.

Visit the Pony on bathstreet in Glasgow on the 17th, 6-8pm to meet them.

Visit the Melting Pot in Edinburgh on the  16th, 6-8pm to meet them.

Social Innovation Camp has special place in the heart of Snook !! Two years ago ( the day after my graduation ) my idea for an online feedback tool for the police won Social Innovation Camp.

Now Snook are in the prototyping phase of delivering MyPolice with Tayside Police. Lauren and I worked very hard to transform my back of the napkin idea into a functioning software product that now has a full time web developer behind it.

We’re delighted to offer follow up support for the winning idea of the camp.  Snook plan to spend one day with the winner of this years Social Innovation Camp to share the MyPolice journey and the learnings that have come with it. Snook are keen to see innovation flourish in Scotland and would like to combine our networks, talents and skills to add value to this years winning idea.

See you there!!
