How can a “smart swarm” provide better healthcare?

How can a “smart swarm” come together to provide sustainable, safe and accountable healthcare to every community across the globe? You may have heard of the MacArthur Foundation’s 100&change initiative, which will award a hundred million dollars to implement a credible solution to one of the most critical problems facing the world today.

One of the most urgent problems facing us now is how to provide sustainable health and social care across the globe. We believe that the solution is an integrated network of local care services equipped with open source knowledge and technology.

Because we know that diversity is critical, we volunteer to coordinate a “smart swarm” decentralised application of hundreds of small communities and organisations: and we invite you to join it.

The process is simple:

  • From 20 July-20 August, we will hold virtual gatherings where people can present their projects, which will be posted on our platform for the community to discuss.
  • From 20 August-20 September, we will meet in person to shape our shared application, circulate it for feedback and create a final version.
  • On 2 October, our application will be submitted to the MacArthur Foundation.

Getting started is easy! Just fill in this short form (deadline July 30):
