As practitioners of Citizen Science, community-based research and youth engagement, we seek to use this series of webinars to create space for discussing important questions of Y-CSS, mobilise feedback on the YouCount framework & start building a community of interest around Y-CSS. Participation is open to everybody and free of charge. The webinars are organised by the Working Group on Empowerment, Inclusiveness & Equity at the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) and the Living Knowledge Network (LKN) together with the YouCount EU project.
The meeting will be held in Zoom. Agenda and registration link are HERE.
YouCount is about developing new ways to increase social inclusion of young people. Nine countries are participating in this three-year, EU-funded project, which is coordinated by OsloMet, Oslo Metropolitan University. VA (Public & Science), Södertörn University and Botkyrka Youth Council are collaborating on the Swedish part of the project. The project runs from February 2021 until December 2023.
