Young people in Europe are facing many challenges with regard to social inclusion (e.g. social participation, employment, social belonging). There is a pressing need to develop more knowledge and innovation to create more inclusive and youth-friendly societies. One way to contribute to this is through Citizen Social Science with young people - Youth Citizen Social Science (Y-CSS). 

As practitioners of Citizen Science, community-based research and youth engagement, we seek to use this series of webinars to create space for discussing important questions of Y-CSS, mobilise feedback on the YouCount framework & start building a community of interest around Y-CSS. Participation is open to everybody and free of charge. The webinars are organised by the Working Group on Empowerment, Inclusiveness & Equity at the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) and the Living Knowledge Network (LKN) together with the YouCount EU project.

Community of interest: Privacy Policy

Data Privacy PolicyInformed consent used for online registration 

You are registering to the community of interest database of the YouCount project.

The name and details of your organization will be shared on the YouCount website. Your personal contact details will not be shared publicly.

PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT

YouCount - EMPOWERING YOUTH AND COCREATING SOCIAL INNOVATIONS AND POLICYMAKING THROUGH YOUTH-FOCUSED CITIZEN SOCIAL SCIENCEproject (funded by EC programme H2020, Grant agreement ID: 101005931). Start date: 1 February 2021, End date: 31 January 2024.

YouCount aims to generate new knowledge and innovations to increase the social inclusion of youth at risk of exclusion across Europe through co-creative youth citizen social science. Youth (15 - 29 years) in nine European countries will participate as citizen scientists in case studies to explore positive drivers for social participation, employment, social belonging and citizenship. 

The project will create a model for social inclusion and develop policy briefs and educational materials (with customized tools and best practices) for youth citizen social science (Y-CSS) and evaluation of citizen social science (CSS) to be used by researchers, individuals and citizen groups.

The project includes four sub-studies: 

1) Development of a framework for Y-CSS together with a transdisciplinary consortium and multilevel platform of key experts and stakeholders in a European and international setting. The YouCount digital platform you are registering to is a part of this sub-study

2) Implementation of a multiple case study of Y-CSS projects in nine countries across Europe where over 900 young citizen scientists and nine local living labs will co-create innovations together. 

3) Mixed-methods evaluation of the outcomes and impact of the Y-CSS activities, and a multi-criteria assessment of the costs and benefits of Y-CSS, and 

4) Creation of social and scientific impact through widespread scaling up and continuity. These activities will lead to robust knowledge and scientifically reasoned measures to promote Y-CSS and social change. The project will support dissemination and education in Y-CSS, and make synergies with other CSS related projects and initiatives, in particularly with citizen social science.

The project is coordinated by OSLOMET - STORBYUNIVERSITETET (Norway), and the Principal Investigator is Reidun Norvoll. The community of interest database of YouCount project is curated by Kaunas University of Technology.

The YouCount project

Overall, YouCount targets two strands of inquiry: 1) knowledge about social inclusion and how to create social change through the involvement of young citizen scientists and 2) contributing to the scientific knowledge base for Y-CSS for increased scaling. This is reflected in the specific objectives below. In line with the EU Youth Strategy and official EU definitions, the project includes young people from a wide age range – 15 to 29 years old – because youths face many inclusion challenges well into their 20s, as well as during their teenage years.

The project will focus on youths in general but will address the circumstances of youths who are most at risk of marginalisation in terms of poverty, migration, disability, low education, unemployment and disenfranchisement; some cases will 3 include young people from deprived or disadvantaged areas. Thus, the project will involve a broad range of young people from local areas to avoid stigmatising particular groups by labelling them as ‘disadvantaged youths’ while stimulating social networking across groups of young people. In doing so, the project acknowledges that young people are a diverse group of citizens, and many possess important resources for local innovation and development.

Social inclusion

YouCount will focus on social inclusion, which is understood as equal opportunities for youth participation in society, and will elucidate three main domains of social inclusion: 1) social participation (e.g., work, education and social life); 2) connectedness and social belonging; and 3) citizenship and rights. As elaborated on later, the multiple case studies – consisting of nine co-creative Y-CSS projects across Europe – will provide increased knowledge of the positive drivers for social inclusion in general and specific knowledge and innovation in relation to participation, belonging and citizenship.

Youths will participate as citizen scientists in two ways: Young people from the community and students will participate in the whole research process as citizen scientists (R-YCS) in the research teams. A larger group of youths will serve as community citizen scientists (C-YCS) at a lower level of participation by contributing data from their daily experiences on an online platform, and identifying targeted solutions through participating in local dialogue forums (DF, e.g., group conversations or ‘listenings’). Each case will establish local living labs (LLs) with multiple stakeholders in the wider community, which will use the data provided by the participating young citizen scientists to cocreate policy-making and innovations in terms of new ideas, products or methods as a way to create social change

What is Citizen Science?

Citizen science (CS) – broadly defined as ‘voluntary participation of the public in the scientific process’ and currently launched by the European Commission (EC) as an open science priority – holds great potential for contributing to new knowledge and innovations, helping create more inclusive societies for young people by supporting science–society collaboration and the active engagement of citizens in research and innovation.

Yet CS is less developed in the social sciences, and evidence of the actual outcomes of CS in social science research is still scant. Thus, YOUCOUNT will respond to these scientific and societal needs by developing youth citizen science in the social sciences (Y-CSS) together with youths as citizen scientists (YCS), supporting the implementation of hands-on CSS in practice and providing a solid evaluation base of the implementation and outcomes of CSS.
