Twelve Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability & Social Innovation are now online! Meet the community! 

Welcome to Impact4you!

The Impact4you platform presents a number of societal challenges that are being tackled by European Union funded CAPS-projects. These  CAPS projects are unique because they explicitly use a social innovation approach. This means that they work collaboratively following a  bottom-up approach, involving people and grassroots organizations, rather than working top-down and in one-direction producing something for, rather than with the community. Moreover, the output of their work aims to create a societal benefit, something that we all can benefit  from, rather than only producing economic gains.
The projects presented on this platform represent the first generation of CAPS projects. You now have the unique opportunity to get involved in  sharing your thoughts on the effectiveness and the need for these  projects. We want to hear from European citizens what they think about the projects aims, objectives and outputs so that we can inform  the European Commission as to what kind of initiatives the European  citizens value.
Your feedback will not only help the CAPS-projects  presented here, but it will also help shape the future of social  innovation at the European Union!
So, get to know the CAPS and share your opinion!
