Timeline:

September – November 2016

Team Lead & Facilitators of design thinking/social innovation models

Cost estimate / resources needed

Lessons Learned:

A similar blitz was held to challenge gun violence within the St. Louis region. Lessons learned:  spend less time explaining the process and more time doing, allocate more time to session (unfortunately restricted to 1-hour based on partner & venue, but will have more time in future), expect 3x more attendees than registered (and match supplies), explicitly state followup plan.
