About this webinar

Individuals' trust and confidence in European institutions are low. Let's discuss how engagement and transparency at the EU level is critical to closing the gap between the European Union on one side and citizens and representative organizations on the other.

In this webinar, we'll discuss about how the European Union is using digital platforms to bridge the gap between its constituents and representative institutions. The topic include infrastructure utilized for EU decision-making to achieve participatory democracy through the use of various tools and strategies, including digital technologies for connecting with individuals and organizations.

Like in many other nations, the UK's political principles and democracy have not been explained and made accessible to many people which hinders many people from engaging. By using the EU as an example, we will examine how this issue might be resolved in Scotland utilizing participatory democracy tools and technologies and how they are bridging the gap between citizens and decision-makers.
