OTB team is happy to announce the approval of the project: “YUPAD – YoUth PArticipatory budgets empowering young people using big Data
The YUPAD project aims to enable young people to understand, practice, and influence youth participatory budgets across European cities. During the project a comprehensive view of already existing grass-root and policy practices in youth participatory budgets combining research, policy, and youth work practices will be developed. Local policy mechanisms for participatory budgets will be created and the capacity of educators to provide quality non-formal educational activities for young people on topics of youth participatory budgets will be built. This will enable local authorities to put in practice youth participatory budgets using big data while addressing digital transformation.
OTB will take on the lead and implement the project with 9 partners: Union of the Baltic Cities (Poland), CESIE (Italy), CSI (Cyprus), SÜDWIND (Austria), RD IKSD (Latvia), OPENS (Serbia), IED (Greece), XWHY and MAGNUS University (Lithuania). The project will be funded by Erasmus+ program and will last 24 months. We are looking forward to kick of the collaboration and task ahead of us.
The YUPAD Project will be implemented under the Erasmus+ Call for the Partnership for Cooperation in the Field of Youth – European NGOs.
