Youth Participation Through Distributed Discussion

The paper describes an eParticipation project, piloted in four EU countries: Estonia, Germany, Ireland and the UK. HUWY, Hub Websites for Youth Participation, was an initiative where young people were invited to think about current and future problems of the Internet and propose solutions, within the framework of a distributed discussion. This paper reviews this implementation of the distributed discussion model to highlight its possibilities for supporting eParticipation of young people.
