The CAPSSI initiative designs and pilots online platforms, creates awareness of sustainability problems and offers collaborative solutions based on innovative networks of people, ideas, services and technologies, enabling new forms of social innovation. It supports environmentally aware efforts, grassroots processes and practices for sharing knowledge, achieving changes in lifestyle, production and consumption patterns, and setting up more participatory democratic processes on a pan-European scale.

Funded under the Information and Communication Technologies programme of Horizon 2020’s Industrial Leadership component, and its call for collective awareness platforms for sustainability and social innovation, the project is developing a social networking and awareness-raising platform dedicated to encouraging childcare and work/life balance. The platform capitalises on neighbourhood networks and enables citizens to come together to share tasks, time and skills relevant to childcare and after-school education/leisure, where these have become unaffordable in times of stagnation and austerity.
