The ‘Sustainability Maker’ project proposes to use the enabling opportunities of new media and other innovative ‘bottom up’ strategies to resolve urgent sustainability problems and to implement European environmental and social policy. Its overall goal is to create an online platform and network – the ‘Sustainability Maker’ – whose aim will be to become a powerful initiative towards the resolution of sustainability-related problems. Offering a collaborative approach to finding creative solutions, the ‘open innovation’ platform will combine a website and mobile application, to be supported by annual conventions (physical meetings). The project will bring together people who have identified sustainability-related problems with those who are to develop, or who have already developed, solutions. In addition, the project will help to devise funding solutions for such initiatives e.g. by crowd-funding.
