  • To enable local authorities to put in practice youth participatory budgets using big data while addressing digital transformation;
  • To ensure the sustainability of project results by developing the community of practitioners from across Europe.


  • Research on current trends, opportunities and best practices on methods for participatory budget at the local, national and international levels;
  • Data collection, analysis of good practices and interviews with participants and key stakeholders;
  • Promotion of participatory budget and capacity building activities on using big data for youth, educators and policy makers.
