If you’ve ever posted to Facebook or Twitter, then you’re unlikely to have any issues posting your ideas to the Ideas Jam platform. Just follow these steps.

  • STEP 1: Go to the Ideas Jam platform and select the challenge you want to post an idea in. You can do that either by clicking on the relevant challenge in the homepage carousel, or by navigating to the Active Challenges page and clicking on the challenge there. (If it’s your first Ideas Jam, you’ll be prompted to create an account on the platform first.)
  • STEP 2: Read the brief. You’ll see a few lines of text at the top of the challenge page that describe exactly what we’re asking, and what we’re trying to achieve in this challenge. There may also be links to relevant reading material.
  • STEP 3: Post an idea. Immediately under the brief you’ll see the ‘Post an Idea’ button. Click on that and the submissions window will open up. Just type your responses into the fields provided. You can also add an image to illustrate your idea, and other attachments if you want to.
  • STEP 4: Publish your idea. When you’re ready, hit the ‘Publish’ button at the bottom of the submissions window. All ideas will be briefly reviewed by the 2021 Roadmap Team, so there may be a delay of up to 24 hours before you can see your idea on the challenge page. Note that you don’t have to complete the whole submission in one sitting. You can save drafts as you go, and then hit the ‘Publish’ button when you’re ready to share your idea.
