EUth is an innovative research project funded by the European Commission. We want to get more young people involved in political decision-making and increase youth trust in European political institutions. How is that achieved? Eleven project partners from eight different countries will develop an open and easy-to-use online participation platform along with different mobile tools and apps for smartphones and tablets. This way, young people can get involved whenever and wherever they wish with minimum effort. The platform will be able to be utilised by youth organisations and administrations of any size and level all over Europe.
AEGEE will use the EUth features to improve its communication and discussion processes with its members. The EUth-project is an opportunity to improve the communication within our big network of 13000 members in 200 local groups in 40 different countries. As one of three pilot projects within the EUth Living Lab, AEGEE is implementing and testing the tool before it goes live, and thus developing the tool with the project partners according to AEGEE’s requirements.
The Pilot consists of implementing and testing the EUth features in the local groups, regional meetings and the Main Assembly in Spring 2016.
