Welcome to the Families_Share project website!

Funded under the Information and Communication Technologies programme of Horizon 2020’s Industrial Leadership component, and its call for collective awareness platforms for sustainability and social innovation, the Families_Share project is developing a social networking and awareness-raising platform dedicated to encouraging childcare and work/life balance. The platform capitalises on neighbourhood networks and enables citizens to come together to share tasks, time and skills relevant to childcare and after-school education/leisure, where these have become unaffordable in times of stagnation and austerity.

City Labs

Families_Share will be deployed within different settings and environments in seven EU cities where participatory needs analysis, co-design and co-creation processes will be set up, leading to the development of the first Families_Share Platform prototypes that will trigger socially innovative models for socialising childcare in urban neighbourhoods. Digital social innovation processes will be supported by communication and dissemination efforts and the whole local experiment will shape the Families_Share CityLabs, which will include efforts to raise awareness, build sustainability and encourage further exploitation at national level. The cultural and socioeconomic impact will be measured at a local and international level.
