Foro Room (Capacity 42). Camino de Mundaiz, 50. 20012 San Sebastian
The EU YouCount project will be presented by Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness and the Social Work area of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences at the University of Deusto on Thursday, 23 September. This project aims to work on the inclusion factors of young people who do not yet have citizenship status. The project, coordinated with other European countries, is carried out in collaboration with LoiolaEtxea and Agintzari-Zabalduz. Thanks to the mediation of these two entities, two groups of 10 young people will be formed with whom the researchers will work to define their inclusion factors. The novelty of the project lies in the fact that the young people themselves will be the actors and researchers of the process.

YouCount Project

A significant number of young people in Europe and worldwide are at risk of social exclusion. Therefore, there is a pressing need to develop more knowledge and innovation to create more inclusive and supportive societies. Citizen science, understood as the participation of citizens themselves in the different scientific processes that can take place at the community level, could contribute to respond to these needs. The overall objective of YouCount is to generate new knowledge and innovations to increase the social inclusion of young people at risk of exclusion across Europe through co-creative youth citizen social science.
