Digital social innovation
Across Europe a growing movement of people is developing inspiring digital solutions to social challenges. These range from social networks for those living with chronic health conditions, to online platforms for citizen participation in policymaking, to using open data to create more transparency about public spending. We call this phenomenon digital social innovation (DSI).
DSI offers the possibility to deliver social impact more efficiently and to empower people to take more control over the issues they face. But DSI is far from reaching its full potential, and has not entered mainstream consciousness, the third sector and public services.
This network aims to bring the growing DSI community together with other communities interested in social innovation, in order to exchange ideas and lessons and to build new connections. The network is facilitated by Nesta, who have established a strong network in the field of DSI through the digitalsocial.eu platform.
