The project “Political and sOcial awareness on Water EnviRonmental challenges” (POWER) aims to support the local level in realising its full potential concerning water management and in implementing a better communication with its residents, in order to change behaviours and attitudes towards water. In order to reach and connect people worldwide, the POWER project already runs four digital social platforms (DSPs), which as POWER Water Communities look at the water-related challenges facing the cities of Leicester and Milton Keynes as well as the water utilities Hagihon (Jerusalem) and CASSA (Sabadell). To make participation in the DSPs even easier, the POWER Communities are now available as a mobile version, which can be downloaded free of charge from Google Play or the App Store.
Are you a social entrepreneur, innovator, activist, student or simply someone who cares about moving towards a sustainable future? You can still submit ideas to the POWER Idea contest that addresses water-related environmental challenges. The submission deadline for the Idea contest has been extended to the 31st January 2019, and you can join here. Or watch the POWER Idea Contest video for more information about the contest.
