We are convinced that digital tools can give a great boost to youth participation. We think that active participation of young people is crucial for the quality of democracy.
OPIN will be used to promote the involvement of young people at all levels. We are committed to make of OPIN a tool to make young people's voices heard.
With OPIN our members will be able to share ideas and to comment text. This will help them to organize events and to prepare proposals for the statutory events.
As from March 2016 our locals from Aachen, Bergamo and León will use OPIN to improve their decision making process. The groups of Berlin, Osnabrück, Oviedo and Paris will start in January 2017. From April 2016-May 2016 OPIN will be used to prepare our general assembly, the AGORA, in Bergamo, an event with more than 1,000 participants. In between we will provide feedback to the other consortium partners to improve OPIN platform.
AEGEE is an organisation with 13,000 members in 200 cities in Europe. We strive for a democratic, diverse and borderless Europe, which values the participation of young people. OPIN will be used to foster our members participation.
