Welcome to the Sustainability Maker Project Website

Sustainability Maker is an innovation and demonstration project supported by the European LIFE Program, which will create an open innovation, crowd-sourcing, crowd-voting, crowd-funding platform and an online marketplace for Sustainable Solutions.

The open innovation online platform will be ready for use in October 2013 and will connect

  • people / organizations, that want to pose Sustainability related problems to the platform to be solved, with
  • people / organizations, that like to develop creative problem solving solutions, and support their implementation.

The project is carried out by 5 core partners, econcept Agency for Sustainable Design (manager), ecosense media & communicationtyclipso.netPolitecnico Milano, Forum für soziale Technikgestaltung and several network partners as well as further experts.

We will inform you about the project and its progress on this website. The actual platform will be a separate site and is accessible after the beta phase. This platform is open to everybody. Please get involved and get in contact with us with all your comments, ideas and questions.
