Here is the scenario,
You have sixty seconds to pitch your best idea, invention, policy, and so on. Try to think outside the block and be creative. It can be an invention, a policy or law change, a behavioral change, and so on.
Please read your post and time it to sixty seconds! These should be short, powerful, and convincing. 60 seconds is about two paragraphs or 500 words. The writing should be clear, compelling, and concrete.
You can browse past class blogs’ ideas for inspiration. Maybe you can take an idea there and tweak or modify it for your pitch (if you do so, give some attribution!) Jordi was inspired to do this originally from a BBC program and podcast (the Forum).
You can go big (whole world) or small (fix one corner of the world). The main idea is that it is an idea that we can envision.
What to post:
As per the BC’s instructions, make a 60 second video and post it here. The maximum file size is one gb. So, we think you will upload your pitch to YouTube or Vimeo. Make sure your video streams to our blog and it not just a link.
There will be a small prize for the winning idea as determined by the post’s impact (votes and views). Jordi has the final tie-breaking authority.
Encourage others to see your idea! Facebook! Twitter! Whatever it takes!
