Explain your idea in details:
We are developing a community-driven mobile platform which aims to provide transparency into the workings of the EU thus establishing trust and enabling the European Union to achieve its goals. Apart from that, it also equips young people with knowledge and opportunities to take action and help Europe's transition into sustainability. The main features of our app: -Provides young people continuously updated centralized information curated from many European Union-related sources -Equips them with knowledge about the EU and the pressing challenges it faces in the 21st century -Empowers them to share their ideas, participate in community events and build social networks with other like-minded people -Enables them to contribute to decision-making processes, volunteer and work within the EU and translate their knowledge into action
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
We expect young people to become much more aware of the European Union and its sustainability goals, therefore becoming more engaged and willing to participate in both volunteering- and job opportunities related to sustainability areas. We are planning to measure success by direct feedback from our users via surveys, and also by the increase in survey participants, volunteering and job applications based on our partners' data.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
We have prepared a non-profit business model, with our only expenses being the server- and App Store/Play Store licensing costs of our app. We can achieve this by only being dependent on volunteers, including ourselves, using free marketing tools including Instagram, and using free online resources to learn how to develop, and to actually develop our app.
I am Milan, 20 years old, and I am currently a second-year electrical engineering student. In my free time, I am keen to learn about social sciences, philosophy and the ways to build more democratic, sustainable institutional systems around the world. My mission is to help humanity's transition into sustainability, to which, I believe, the education of people is key.
