Proximology - to develop an ecosystem to support social innovation by local citizens for local citizens in field where the public sector has failed to deliver

Social Purpose:
To create jobs for lower-skilled people and long-term unemployed people through the provision of services related to the improvement of the public infrastructure and to the offer of local social services based on local resources. The project will aim at identifying public infrastructure that hasn't been renovated for years, and disadvantaged groups, together with services that are no longer provided to them which could be delivered by creating cooperatives or user groups.
Social Impact:
Providing jobs, revenues and wellbeing to disadvantaged people by empowering them and calling upon social responsability of those citizens.
Innovative Character:
It's public innovation in the sense that citizens will take initiatives for making up themselves for what's lacking in public investment.
