Propose an InnoCentive Challenge and Help Change the World

Posted by Connie French on Aug 6, 2009 6:09:18 PM

In your opinion, what is the most pressing water-related problem affecting the developing world?  If a Seeker had resources to devote, and wanted to use them specifically to solve a water-related issue in the developing world, what issue should they tackle? 

Today we posted a Challenge asking just that.  The Seeker is looking for proposals for an upcoming Challenge that will address a problem in the developing world, specifically related to water.  Submissions should address a specific issue, such as delivery of fresh water to remote villages or prevention of contamination of a water supply by mosquitoes with malaria.  The submission should also propose a problem that is solvable with today's existing resources - a pipeline to Mars would be cool, but won't win an award. 

Anyone is eligible to submit a solution for this Challenge - no technical expertise is required and the Seeker will pay out at least $8000 in awards.  Unfortunately, this one has a quick turnaround - it's only posted for 3 weeks.  This is a unique opportunity for you to propose a Challenge that will positively affect those who need it most  - so log in, put on your thinking caps and start changing the world!
