Short description of the event:

The aim of the event is to present the ACTIon project and discuss how to support young people in using digital tools for active civic participation. We will demonstrate two such tools, the F.I.R.E. and the OPIN platform, and will share experience and practices on reaching to young people, as well as other tools out there. So, if you want to learn what tools are available, or if you would like to promote your tools, this is the right place.
