The study session “Youth e-participation matters – Transferring local youth participation in decision-making processes to the digital sphere” takes place between 10th and 16th of October (including travel days) and aims to highlight the importance of youth e-participation and equip youth workers, municipality representatives and youth leaders with practical knowledge on the applicability, transferability and implementation of different digital solutions for youth participation in decision-making processes at the local level.
The activity builds on the results, experience and knowledge acquired during the study session “W(e)-participate! Harnessing digital innovation for youth participation at the local level”, which was organised by DYPALL Network in cooperation with the Youth Department of the Council of Europe in the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg between 27 September and 3 October 2020. That session helped youth workers to develop a common understanding of digital youth participation, map and discuss its opportunities, reflect on the possible standards in digital youth participation and exchange and discover some of the existing good practices in this field. Moreover, that activity opened many questions, for which we would like to find an answer during this study session and explore the topic more in-depth. The report of that Study Session is available HERE.
During this study session, participants will learn about opportunities and threats behind youth e-participation and examine existing good practices and some of the tools for e-participation during practical workshops. Moreover, participants will reflect on the quality process and strategies of implementing youth e-participation in terms of cooperation with local stakeholders, community building or sustainability. Together, we will build a list of values and principles of youth e-participation and a common understanding of how youth e-participation can support youth participation in decision-making processes at the local level.
Application deadline: 15 August, 2021
