Looking back at the stakeholder meeting “Youth participation and active citizenship: can civic tech truly enhance our democracy?”

On the 28th of June, in the framework of the NEXUS project, ECAS organised a stakeholder meeting on the theme of Youth Participation, active citizenship and civic tech. This event was the opportunity to present the outcomes of the NEXUS project and to discuss the related topics of inclusion and the role of civic-tech in our democracies. A diverse public from institutions, youth organisations, civic-tech businesses and NGOs was present to compare perspectives.
