Seattle Social Good Series

IxDA Seattle and Open Seattle present an action-based interdisciplinary project aimed at producing actionable solutions to support the needs of local community organizations. We're bringing together members of the design and tech communities to work on select projects for local social good organizations to show how design thinking can have a tangible & measurable impact on issues facing the greater Seattle community.
