Creative activists for democracy are wanted for a new ‘Edgeryders’ online project developed by the Council of Europe and the European Commission.
“The Edgeryders team needs people to help us conect with the most creative activists fior democracy in Europe and elsewhere,” said Alberto Cottica, of the Council of Europe’s Social Cohesion Research and Early Warning Division.
“Young people are reinventing new channels for participation – from the Arab Spring to the Icelandic Wiki Constitution. We feel their expertise should be part of the transition of European youth and of the Edgeryders community.
“If you are passionate and knowledgeable about 21st century democracy, consider working with us.”
