Digital social innovations (DSI) are often associated with positive meanings, like openness, collaboration or inclusion. DSI can thus be defined as novelties that use, develop, or rely on digital technologies to address social and/or environmental problems.
Digital technologies and the internet are particularly well suited to helping civic action, as they can mobilise large communities, facilitate resource-sharing and distribute power downwards.
