Event Details


We never have enough of it.

Yet right now, the world needs more people than ever to make a bit of time to help others in real need.

Last year Open Planet Ideas invited people to imagine and submit ideas on how technology might help with some of our most pressing social and environmental challenges.

+U was one of those ideas.

An Android mobile application with gaming and social flavours that enables people to find short time based opportunities and tasks in their local area that can help a charity or a cause.

Sony Europe’s software engineers have made that APP a reality - now we need you to help Make it fly.

On the 30th March Good for Nothing is hosting MAKE/TIME a collaboration with Sony Europe.

A 48 hr making and development session with three specific missions:

1. Make the +U app work  for the biggest aggregator of volunteering opportunities in France: Espace Benevolat

2. Make the +U app work for Thames 21 an innovative London based charity and help them encourage more people to make time for the upkeep of the Capital’s waterways

3. Hack +U into something awesome. Free-range, make some magic. Which can make others make time for those in need.

We’re seeking a select crew of developers (front and backend), designers, makers and thinkers to make this happen.

There will be Sony prizes, goodie bags, expenses cover, food, drink, music, and a visit to Sony’s R&D team for the most awesome creation.

Outline Schedule:

Thursday 29th March 7pm - 9 pm Kick off briefing and drinks

Friday 30th March 9.30 a.m - 6 pm Making and Do-ing

Saturday 31st March 9.30 am - 5pm Making/Doing - 5pm Show and Tell

More Details to follow...
