Please refer details below from Claudia Göbel, Co-Chair of the working group.

Young people in Europe are facing many challenges with regard to social inclusion. Social participation, employment, social belonging are important examples. There is a pressing need to develop more knowledge and innovation to create more inclusive and youth-friendly societies. One way to contribute to this is Citizen Social Science with young people – Youth Citizen Social Science (Y-CSS).

We organise a series of three webinars to discuss central questions of Y-CSS and to create a network of interested people. The webinars are for practitioners of Citizen Science, Community-based Research and youth engagement. We would be happy to learn from your experience and the questions you bring. We would be particularly grateful for young researchers and youth organisations to take part. We want to learn from their work and perspectives. People without prior experience are of course also very welcome. These are exciting conversations and we are working hard to make them happen in inclusive and equitable ways. 

Participation in the webinars is open to everybody and free of charge. The next two webinars are: 21st October (Methodologies & Evaluation), 13:00-15:00 CEST,
4th November (Transformative & Innovative Impact), 13:00-15:00 CEST.
