Our European Sister Association ECSA has warmly invited the ACSA community to attend 3 Webinars on Youth Citizen Social Science. These events have been organised as part of the ECSA working group on Empowerment, Inclusiveness & Equity together with the YouCount project.
“Young people in Europe are facing many challenges with regard to social inclusion (e.g. social participation, employment, social belonging). There is a pressing need to develop more knowledge and innovation to create more inclusive and youth-friendly societies. We aim to contribute to this through Citizen Social Science with young people – Youth Citizen Social Science (Y-CSS).
We will organize 3 webinars with the aim to discuss important questions, get feedback on the YouCount plans & start building a community of interest around Y-CSS. Participation is open to everybody and free of charge.
(1) Inclusive co-creation in Y-CSS: How to integrate young people in research & innovation?
Friday 24th September 2021, 13:00-15:00 CEST
(2) Methodologies & evaluation for Y-CSS: How to make our engagement count?
Thursday 21st October 2021, 13:00-15:00 CEST
(3) Transformative & Innovative impact of Y-CSS: How to make social change?
Friday 5th November
The webinars are co-organised by the YouCount EU project, & the Working Group on Empowerment, Inclusiveness & Equity jointly run by the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) and the Living Knowledge Network (LKN).
