Platform for Citizens Participation
Many actions have begun through an informal discussion among a group of friends ... but the truth is that the groups are making history with their ideas, which are simple yet prove so profound, make an affect on our daily lives. Moreover groups have visions and they are the incubator of countless actions ...And beyond friends, groups of citizens acting in the framework of the Civil Society.
Civil society has grown into a force that changes the world.
In SciFY we feel it is imperative to create an open source platform, which will operate as a network of interactive communication agencies and citizens groups.
What it is
The active commons is an online platform that helps individuals to participate in groups to act for a common purpose. We support the creation of local action groups, interaction and exchange of knowledge through direct open information on issues related to a wide range of activities.
An application was developed with the cooperation of non-profit organizations Culture Polis, Place Identity and SciFY in the project Policy Innovation Platform and co-financing of the project "We are all citizens".
Who it is for
ActiveCommons addresses to:
Institutions of civil society that want to collaborate effectively online, communicate their actions and deliver results.
Any group or citizen that wants to be informed about the actions of civil society.
- Organizations seeking synergies in their work.
We get even more joy when our creations travel outside the Greek borders!
The German Institute MitOst in cooperation with the Robert Bosch Stiftung Foundation used the platform as a way to support the Actors of Urban Change programme for a pilot period of almost 2 years. The Actors of Urban Change programme aims to develop cities through cultural activities. Teams from many countries participated in the platform (Italy, Spain, Serbia, Portugal and Russia and more).
Based on the experience collected, we all advanced our expertise in supporting groups of citizens get into action.
