No one left behind – Empowering citizens to participate in democratic processes
Project number: 101081426
(W)E-democracy project aims to pilot a crowdsourcing activity in 5 European countries on the subject of “circular economy” (CE). We have chosen this specific topic because we acknowledge the importance and the urgent need for a more Circular Economy in Europe. The project wants to promote citizens’ and representative associations’ participation in and contribution to the democratic and civic life of the Union by making known and publicly exchanging their views in all areas on Union action. In particular, the project wants to develop innovative democratic approaches and tools to help citizens make their voices heard and publicly exchange views on all areas of EU action, notably e-democracy, and to engage them in discussions and action related to our climate and environment.
The project specific objectives are:
To organize an online survey in the participating countries to understand citizens’ attitudes, habits, needs and ideas on the project issue/circular economy. The ultimate goal of the survey is to collect enough data in order to have a “problem mapping”.
To organize public events in the participating countries for citizens to debate and prose solutions to the “circular economy” problems mapped.
To combine social listening and Crowdsourcing methods to improve the understanding of stakeholders what the public at large thinks about circular economy and the possible solutions for policy-makers.
(W)E-democracy will be organized in 3 Activities and 13 Work Packages:
