Collective Awareness & Digital Social Innovation In The European Union

Fabrizio Sestini

This session will discuss the ongoing activities and future plans of the European Commission in the field of Collective Awareness Platforms (CAPS) and Digital Social Innovation.

The initiative “Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation” (CAPS) aims at designing and piloting online platforms creating awareness of sustainability problems and offering collaborative solutions based on networks (of people, of ideas, of sensors), enabling new forms of social innovation.

CAPS are expected to support environmentally aware, grassroots processes and practices to share knowledge, to achieve changes in lifestyle, production and consumption patterns, and to set up more participatory democratic processes.
