Social media can help organise voluntary and civic commitment. A large number of initiatives uses Facebook, Twitter and others to call attention to activities and topics. They win followers and supporters and motivate others to be a part of their projects. From 2014 to 2022, the Smart Hero Award honored projects, initiatives and individuals who successfully implement their civic engagement with and on social media.
All projects, institutions, initiatives and individuals that were nominated or received an awardduring the nine years of the competition are Smart Heroes and therefore part of the Smart Hero Community, which will be the focus of the project in 2023.
