Crowdsourcing rubbish ideas

Crowdsourcing rubbish ideas

NASA and Nike have joined forces for the LAUNCH project, a follow-up on their Energy Solutions project, which seeks to find 10 game-changing innovative waste management ideas that can change the way we dispose of rubbish. The proposal is crowdsourced and seeks to benefit the community at large, as well as further space research.

Why it matters

As brands increasingly co-sponsor causes in an effort to attract culturally-aware consumers to the brand, it isn’t always enough anymore to simply donate. Beyond crowdsourcing, what are other avenues brands can use to enlist meaningful partners to participate in the cause? How can brands begin to truly own their causes vs. temporarily co-opting them, in the minds of consumers?
