STEP - Societal and political engagement of young people in environmental issues
Where: Various countries
The STEP project addresses the need of public organisations to effectively open their decision-making procedures that have an environmental impact to young people. The overall objective of the project is to develop and pilot test an eParticipation cloud platform, enhanced with web / social media mining, gamification, machine translation, and visualisation features, which will promote the societal and political participation of young people in the decision-making processes on environmental issues.
Four pilots in an operational environment have been selected for the deployment of STEP solution in 4 locations: Italy, Spain, Greece, and Turkey, with the participation of one regional authority, 3 municipalities, and an association of municipalities. The pilots are expected to involve testing by 8.200 young users and 85 policy makers.
