Ideas World Cup comes to Cape Town this year

Ideas World Cup comes to Cape Town this year

The Ideas World Cup is being hosted in Cape Town this year and sees a call to thousands to break the world record for the most ideas in one day. Most ideas generated will aim to tackle socio-economic problems in and around Cape Town. This is the perfect platform for citizens to join in and share their ideas to make a difference. This is also an opportunity to represent Cape Town, as we will be competing with other cities around the world in real time.

Help brainstorm 10 000 ideas and claim the Ideas World Cup

On 21 April 2017, Ideas World Cup Cape Town will host the most invigorating and interactive brainstorming experience the city has ever seen! We’ve invited innovators, disruptors, expert facilitators and neuroscience experts to help you tap into your creative potential and access all the great ideas you have inside your brain – all with the aim of finding solutions to 5 societal and environmental challenges facing our city.

How to ensure Cape Town’s water security?

How can we ease traffic congestion?

In what ways might we prevent fires in informal settlements?

In what ways might we provide affordable housing in the CBD and surrounding suburbs?

How can we build our city’s capacity for social entrepreneurship?

The event is open to people of all ages and we’ll be checking-in with other Ideas World Cup editions across the world via video feeds to make this a globally-connected experience. Cape Town’s goal is to generate 10 000 ideas for its inaugural Ideas World Cup event! Join us for 10 minutes or five hours – just don’t miss the opportunity to share what’s inside your brain.

Ideas World Cup is the first worldwide ideas competition. It is a celebration of dreams and creativity. Dozens of cities from all around the world will compete simultaneously to see which city generates the most ideas. But Ideas World Cup is not simply a competition; it is based on the desire to change the world. Be part of something spectacular.
