Cibervoluntarios never stops. As coordinators of the European Project SOCRATIC, we will be the next 18th May in Berlin city participating in an important event organised by the European Commission, the “CAPS Community Meeting and Workshop”, in which we will be part of a roundtable with other projects to share opinions, ideas and work.
In Cibervoluntarios Foundation we share with the European Commission and the rest of participants our concern about socially innovative applications of network technologies, building collective intelligence and collective action. That is why we are participating in CAPS (Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation) with the SOCRATIC Platform.
The chosen date is just before the European Citizen Science conference http://www.ecsa2016.eu/ , which includes a panel on the importance of citizen engagement and collective intelligence seen from the bottom-up CAPS perspective of ‘awareness, data, actionable change and innovation’.
