How to get more youngsters actively involved in political decision-making? In the past two years the European innovation project EUth intensively researched the field of youth eParticipation and developed the unprecedented digital participation toolbox OPIN, which is adapted to the needs of young people. On the 7th and 8th of December, the project partners will present their results and the final version of the platform at their Open Summit in Berlin. By bringing the public, non-profit and private sectors together, new synergies, knowledge and partnerships will be built.
During the Open Summit participants will be involved in discussions around the questions: How to enable more eParticipation? What can youth participation learn from citizen participation? How to embed new communication channels in (old) decision-making structures? How to combine online and offline methods? Participants will elaborate recommendations for the development of digital youth participation.
Over 100 participants from different sectors are expected to join in the discussions: practitioners, youth workers and leaders, civic participation actors, researchers and innovators, experts, software developers and people from the private sector, representatives from public administrations and institutions from local to European levels, as well as those who are simply interested in the topic. The EUth project consortium, the pilot projects that have been using the OPIN toolbox all over Europe and young media makers will also join the event.
Seminar / Conference is for 120 participants from Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme countries , Other countries in the world , Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU and recommended for Youth workers, Youth leaders, Project managers, Youth Policy Makers, Public administrations
