Science Communication

dissemination & outreach

The objective of this Working Group is to ensure the visibility of the Action among researchers, youth advocacy organisations, and policy makers at the national and European levels. This WG will closely co-operate with other WGs and the MC of the Action. It will perform communication activities for broad and targeted audiences by using web and social media tools, and to some extent public events for policy makers, NGOs and youth policy target groups too.
