Priority Transparency Needs from a Youth Perspective - SIA4Y project results [ENG]
Transparency needs were formulated on the basis of the analysis of opinions of young Europeans who took part in meetings (discussions, workshops, lectures) and the survey conducted from March 2018 to January 2020 as part of the project Strengthening the civil society rights by information access for European youth (SIA 4 Y) as well as on the basis of correspondence and discussions with the project partners: SOCIALAS INOVACIJAS CENTRS Latvia; WeCitizens – WijBurgers – NousCitoyens Belgium; Aktiivinen Eurooppalainen Kansalainen Suomi Ry Finland; Stowarzyszenie Gmin RP Euroregion Baltyk Poland; Eesti Naisuurimusja Teabekeskus Estonia
During the execution of the SIA4Y project, in all partner countries 9 meetings took place, in which in total over 400 young people partic - ipated. Each meeting with the young had a theoretical dimension as well as a practical one engaging the participants. The general purpose of the meetings was to promote knowledge about the right of access to information. The meetings differed in their specific objectives, which, taking into account national specificities, the activities of organisations dealing with transparency and working with the young, set out their own agendas of meeting topics. The analysis covered the issues and forms of cooperation with young people during these meetings. In addition, a quantitative survey was conducted using a questionnaire “Youth about experience with Freedom of Information”, obtaining a total of 105 responses meeting the formal criteria. The respondents were aged 12–25.
The project “Strengthening civil society rights by information access for European youth” SIA4Y is partly financed from Europe for Citizens Programme.
