- Awareness raising about EU Citizenship and the right to take part in European and local elections in the host country, and other options for engagement at EU and local level;
- Mapping and assessment of electoral and (pre- and post-election) political engagement of mobile students – preferences, readiness, awareness — at EU and local level in Austria and Estonia (based on the EU elections in May 2019 including recent elections for student representative bodies as appropriate); special attention will be paid to the use of social media, e-tools and platforms (e.g. for e-voting) in Austria and Estonia;
- Organizing and facilitating focus-group and online discussions as part of interaction and crowdsourcing activities to seek mobile students’ feedback to reveal engagement opportunities and suggest policy changes. Such discussions will be based on the results of the mapping surveys undertaken before;
- Identifying use requirements (via crowdsourcing) and technical specifications for a scalable pan-European tool (application service) to serve the information and interaction needs of mobile EU students willing to be more active socially and politically in their host countries. The tool is planned to be designed as a prototype for use initially in Austria and Estonia (after the project end) and then scaled up to cover the entire EU as a self-organisation and sustainability support instrument for networking among mobile students interested in engagement in local social and political life;
- Development of policy recommendations aimed at national and European governing bodies responsible for and dealing with youth mobility for broader and sustainable transnational engagement of young people across the EU; this will include a proposal on how to scale the project to all EU Member States and guidelines for the best use of transnational online tools based on the results of the activities described in points above.
- Formulation and agreeing on a sustainability strategy for a networked movement (community) of mobile EU students active socially and politically in their host countries built around of a planned e-tool designed to support and encourage such engagement.
eGA is the leading partner of the Work Package 4 entitled “Use Cases Austria and Estonia: mapping & engagement”, which focuses on the raising awareness and engagement activities with mobile EU youth in both countries. eGA actively participates in the implementation of all other Work Packages of the project.
