As part of the DEEP-linking Youth project, ECAS has developed a set of guidelines for decision-makers on how to use e-participation as an instrument to engage young people and stimulate their active participation in democratic life.
The guidelines are based on the outcomes of the project, which involved examining different ways to reach out to young people using digital tools and the creation of an online Digital Dashboard for policy-makers to listen to the views of young people, particularly those who do not typically engage in decision-making processes.

ECAS has also produced the report ‘Recommendations on Learning Mobility: Insights from the Digital Dashboard‘ as part of the project.
