We are launching our service Utveckla din stad!

We are more than happy to announce the launch of our platform for collaborative, societal innovation, Utveckla Din Stad(swedish for Develop Your City). The purpose is to collect societal challanges from citizens, companies and organizations, allow creative minds contribute with solutions (or iterations of solutions) and finally make the solution available to anyone.
