Many ICT and internet-driven innovative products and services are being developed that seek to tackle social challenges but their deployment is hampered by the fact that both social and economic actors must, and yet are often reluctant to, adapt to new implementation tools, institutional arrangements and regulations. Broad-based innovation is required to overcome resistance to new approaches which eliminate barriers to active multi-stakeholder participation in the transition process. Digital Social Platforms (DSPs) provide a tool to support this vital engagement. EIP Water and EIP Smart Cities and Communities require DSPs to ensure widespread, bottom-up realities. POWER project will provide it.

POWER project aims to:

▪ Set up a direct participatory process by combining evidence gathered from stakeholders with real environment monitoring data.

▪ Facilitate the sharing of progress, knowledge, opinions and best practices in open consultation via a new Digital Social Platform (DSP) implementation.

▪ Mobilise social actions to respond to climate change with local strategies.

POWER actions will enable:

▪ The development of more effective local policies and climate change governance.

▪ Citizens to self-regulate and make informed decisions as consumers.

▪ Local communities of citizens to learn new practices, create new capacities and develop local strategies in response to climate mitigation and adaptation.

▪ Environmental knowledge to be collectively adopted.

▪ Social innovation by the ‘network effect’ that the POWER model will generate.
