In the last years there has been a trend towards more transparent administrations. Some countries have issued new transparency regulations or reinforced their old ones. And many civil organizations launched digital platforms to watch their parliament or city hall activities. But these measures didn't have the expected positive results when it comes to young people feeling involved in the decision making processes. This project is therefore based in the use and enhancement of a tool by which policy-makers are the ones to ask for contributions in order to make decisions. Thereby, the frustration of non-interactive transparency is substituted by a much more positive feeling of inclusion.WeAllCount Europe tackles two main challenges for e-participation: Teaching young people to participate while trying to reduce the digital divide and scaling up the efficient handling of multiple inputs in e-participation tools. Hence this consortium is formed by a high education institution, a technological company and three non-governmental organizations specialized in training for young people in risk of exclusion.The e-participation tool that will serve as a basis for the project was already successfully implemented by the technological partner in Spain, where eight state parliamentarians and over 2.500 citizens do already use it. Now it will be implemented in five other cities of Germany, Spain, Austria, Italy and Lithuania. Non-governmental organizations will train young people as well as policy-makers on how to participate. And finally, the academic partner will collect data of the online participation and carry out representative surveys to evaluate the effects of training on citizen’s political attitude. The experience will be repeated twice in two years, so that the recommendations of the academic partner can be implemented and tested back.20 city councilors, 50.000 citizens and 20.000 proposals are some of the numbers included among the goals of the project.
