#YouEU Toolkit e-participation in the EU democratic life
The developed toolkit will respond to the need for identification and availability of concrete tools in the field of e-participation and e-democracy. The added value of this activity is that it will explore the European landscape, analyse and make available in one publication the state of the art in the use of digital tools for participation and active citizenship at all levels. The toolkit will be available as an e-book in English, Greek, Austrian, Bulgarian and Spanish, and it will be of benefit to young people, youth organisations, CSOs, as well as formal and non-formal educational institutions.
#YouEU E-course on participation and engagement in the EU democratic life
The #YouEU e-course aims at informing and educating young people in active citizenship and participation in the democratic life of the EU with the use of digital tools. It will be addressed to young people to advance their knowledge and to reinvigorate their interest in EU affairs, but it will be also of benefit to: youth organisations that can transfer and use it in their work; non-formal educational providers that could incorporate it in their trainings; school authorities that can use the materials in students aged 16-18 in the courses of Citizenship and History. The e-course will be available in English, Greek, Austrian, Bulgarian and Spanish, and fully digital hosted in the #YouEU platform.
#YouEU digital platform for promoting youth e-participation
The #YouEU digital platform for promoting youth e-participation will act as the digital transnational public sphere that will bring together youth from the participating countries and ultimately from all over Europe to communicate, share issues and build claims together. Its purpose will be to function as a learning, collaborative, deliberative space among youth to learn by participating in the EU democratic life.
