Monday 4 December: Workshop and Exhibition
The Nordic House in Brussels with host a workshop focusing on how to conduct Youth Citizen Social Science in practice and a traveling exhibition about YouCount: at each “station”, young citizen scientists will guide participants through the case country’s findings and possibly offer a small taste experience.
Those participating online will have access to a simplified visual representation of the onsite exhibition. They will be able to investigate the different “stations” through the case countries and their findings. The exhibition will also be part of the interactive session about the potential for youth citizen social science and its challenges, a topic that will be discussed in the second day of the conference.
Tuesday 5 December: Final Conference
The Final Conference will focus on presenting and discussing the main learnings from the YouCount project together with participants and key stakeholders from Europe and globally concerning our three main strands of inquiry:
To develop and validate a conceptual and methodological framework for hands-on youth citizen social science.
To use this framework to empower young people and co-create new knowledge of social inclusion and social innovations with policymakers and other stakeholders.
To increase knowledge of the actual outcomes and costs- and benefits of youth citizen social science, broadly understood.
