Welcome to the DIGY website
The wait is over! We are happy to share the DIGY website with you! What does the platform offer so far?
Digital youth participation empowers young people to become active citizens from the local to European level. However, the positive effects only unfold when the participation process is run professionally – just to use digital tools is not enough to inspire young, administrations and youth organizations to collaborate. Unfortunately, potential initiators often lack the experience, personnel and financial resources needed to plan and conduct a successful eParticipation project. This is a reason why first-time pilot projects often fail due to the many unforseen challenges and pitfalls, leading to frustration among participants.
The Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project “DIGY – Digital youth participation made easy” tackles this problem by delivering qualification and capacity building for initiators of digital youth participation projects. The materials designed will be integrated into the OPIN platform, a professional online toolbox for digital youth participation that is already available in 10 European languages. Thus, the European-wide infrastructure for digital youth participation is strengthened and enriched by modules to increase the know-how on how to run a successful digital youth participation project OPIN!
On the DIGY website you can follow the project’s progress, make use of the outputs of the project and become a community member of digital youth participation. We will continue to develop our website so please do keep an eye out for updates!
