Crowdsourcing and Policy-Making in Europe – Lunch & Learn!

July 2 @ 12:00 - 13:30

Are you a crowdsourcing beginner or a confirmed expert on this digital democracy method for engaging citizens in policy-making? Unlock the power of crowdsourcing at our event and discover how to use digital tools to co-create policy recommendations with citizens!

In the framework of the INDEU (Inclusive Digitalisation in the EU) Project, we are thrilled to invite you to a unique training focusing on what crowdsourcing is and how it can allow for more direct participation of people in decision-making processes. This event offers a prime opportunity to learn from experts and understand the innovative practices that harness the collective intelligence of citizens to shape policies.
