OPIN platform is a great opportunity to encourage young people from the Heart of Slovenia to get desire and strength to actively get involved in communities’ processes and share their opinions and ideas. Young people need to be included in decision making and digital tools can enhance their participation. OPIN will ease young people involvement in political decision making.
With OPIN young people from The Heart of Slovenia will be able to share ideas, get involved in a discussion, put forward proposals, comment on existing proposals and vote. Our project includes three municipalities: Litija, Mengeš and Kamnik; together with Youth Centres they will start using OPIN Idea collection in May 2016. In September 2016 they will also use mobile polling that will enable them to answer polls on their smartphones. Evaluation and feedback will be provided for other partners in the project to improve OPIN platform.
Development Centre of the Heart of Slovenia connects local authorities in central Slovenia. Well-known as a qualified development partner and cooperates with youth organizations. OPIN will be used to enable youngsters to give their opinion and enhance local communities through youth participation.
