Digital Participation Made Easy
Digital youth participation empowers young people to become active citizens from local to European level. The positive effects only unfold when the participation process is run professionally – just to use digital tool is not enough to inspire young people, administrations and youth organisations to collaborate.
 
Unfortunately, potential initiators often lack experience, personal and financial resources needed to plan and conduct a successful e-participation project. This is a reason why first-time pilot project may fail due to the many unknown challenges and efforts, leading to frustration among participation. 
 
This Erasmus+ strategic partnership project ‘DiGY’ – ‘Digital participation made easy’ aims to tackle this problem by delivering qualification and capacity building to initiators of digital participation projects. The materials designed will be integrated into the OPIN platform, a professional online tool-box for digital youth participation that is already available in 10 European languages. Thus, the European- wide infrastructure is strengthened and enriched by modules to increase the for digital youth participation project.

The results of the project will be developed by a consortium of 7 partner from all over Europe, who bring in valuable country-specific knowledge and experiences. Nexus will be the coordinator with Liquid Democracy providing technical support. Youth organisation from Macedonia, Slovenia, Georgia and Malta will be working with on the project from a practical aspect. Creativitas will be focusing on project dissemination.
