Over the course of the last 3 years, SmartRoadSense has been part of the CROWD4ROADS project (or C4Rs, for short). C4Rs combines 7 partners across Europe under the “CAPSSI” umbrella (i.e., Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation), which aims at exploring the opportunities and potential for Digital Social Innovation (DSI) based on bottom-up solutions, citizen participation, openness, and decentralization, to tackle important issues that affect society.
The Digital Social Innovation Manifesto, drafted by a team of innovators, provides an insight into these concepts and how they can be applied to provide more powerful civic participation within democratic and social processes. SmartRoadSense fully embraces many of the keypoints in the manifesto, including openness (open source software and open data), decentralized data collection to promote citizen awareness, digital tool integration, and sustainability.
Please, take a look to the DSI Manifesto and take a minute to endorse it. ✍
