LET’S CROWDSOURCE THE FUTURE OF EUROPE!
How much do you think your opinion counts on the decisions of the European Union? How can we influence our future?
On Tuesday May 9th, 10:00, SciFY – Science For You, invites you to the international conference “Let’s Crowdsource the Future of Europe“, at HIGGS (Viktoros Ougko 15, Athens, Greece) to evaluate “why, how and when” we can participate in the European Union’s decision-making process. At a critical time for the EU, representatives of Civil Society from 6 EU countries will discuss the role citizens can play by using modern techniques (practices and methods) of crowdsourcing.
The purpose of the event is to gain insight as to how EU decisions are made and in what ways crowdsourcing will allow us to participate directly. During the workshop we will discuss the following questions:
- Claiming our time: When is the time to speak?
The purpose of the panel is to set the issue of the stage (when) of the legislative process in the EU we can use crowdsourcing to intervene.
- Claiming our space: On what should we intervene?
The purpose of the panel is to set the issue of the topics (where) that we should crowdsource and the local best practices that could be used on an EU level.
- Doing it our way: How should we intervene?
The purpose of the panel is to set the issue of the tools and methodologies (how) that can enhance crowdsourcing in the EU legislative process.
The above questions will be answered through open discussions with representatives of civil society initiatives in Greece and 5 other European countries, political scientists, technology experts and through workshops where the participants will be invited to discuss how to co-shape the future of Europe. We will also share the experience that we already gained from similar events that took place in Ljubljana, London and Amsterdam.
