YouCount, awarded an honorary mention in the European Union Citizen Science Awards

We are very glad to announce that YouCount has been one of the 27 projects recognised with an honorary mention by the jury of the European Citizen Science Award.

A total of 336 projects competed for this award promoted by the European Union and Ars Electronica, which aims to support and publicly recognise the best projects in the field of citizen science.

In the case of YouCount, the jury noted that "the project addresses one of the most complex social challenges facing Europe: how to increase the social inclusion of young people". Moreover, it does so by involving young citizen scientists as co-researchers in all phases of the research, from planning, website design and data analysis to dissemination activities. The jury appreciated the project's focus on the participation of young people, as they are often excluded from the democratisation processes of social science research.

As one of the 27 projects that received an honorary mention we will have the privilege of participating in the annual Ars Electronica Festival for Art, Technology and Society, which brings together international experts from the arts and sciences in Austria.

This honorary mention is an important recognition of the work carried out by the team and It would not have been possible without the hard work of our young citizen scientists. We're very proud and thankful!
