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.
