ELGL members are invited to volunteer as user advocates for the Census Open Innovation labs’ “Opportunity Project Earth Sprint:
The Census Open Innovation lab is kicking off The Opportunity Project Earth Sprint. There will be two rounds of sprints in which federal agencies and technology companies work together to build products as solutions to problems from recycling to economic development to pollution.
All of the challenges they are looking to work on are outlined on online. Local government elected officials and leaders understand these challenges and focus on them daily and would be great user advocates during these sprints. The time commitment is low, but the impact is very high.
Here’s an overview of what a user advocate does.
There will be a webinar Wednesday, June 10th at 3:30 EST to learn more about this program. The Census Open Innovation lab welcomes ELGL members to participate in these sprints to find solutions to these pressing problems.
