Covenant of Mayors Webinar: How to Engage Citizens in Local Climate Action with Online Tools
POWER H2020 was given the opportunity to hold a webinar at the Covenant of Mayors with our colleagues from Change the Future to introduce the POWER project to many communities.
The webinar aims to give municipalities an insight into citizen participation on adaptation and sustainability issues through online tools. In particular, we will discuss Digital Social Platforms (DSPs) and for this purpose present the POWER platform through the activities of Leicester City, UK, and the Change the Future platform through the example of Worms, Germany. The advantages and challenges of using DSPs will be highlighted and the possibilities of DSPs to achieve adaptation and sustainability goals will be discussed.
