Location / Dates: 8 September 2021 (online)
Short description: The DigiDEM kick-off meeting was held by ECAS in September 2021 to launch the project activities and to prepare the consortium for its implementation.
The DigiDEM kick-off activities consisted of a thorough presentation of the project’s objectives and tasks, mainly the running of the crowdsourcing on air quality in 4 European cities in 4 Phases (problem identification, problem-solving, idea selection, policy formulation (Nov 2022-Jan 2023), and the organisation of events around it. Linked to these two main goals, the partners also worked to evaluate the results of the crowdsourcing – EGA presented the methodology of the Assessment Framework for E-Participation and the Social Listening Guidelines to gather feedback and reach the partners’ approval.
In the meantime, ProInfo developed a specific communications strategy for the one-year crowdsourcing on air quality to focus on three main aspects:
1. Project communication: promoting the project’s objectives, activities and results;
2. Operational communication: to foster citizen participation and decision-makers engagement during crowdsourcing;
3. Internal communication of the consortium.
16 events have been carried out within this project:
