e-engaging young Scotland on radioactive waste management

  The ITC was funded by the Scottish Executive Environment and Rural Affairs Department (SEERAD) to research appropriate tools and techniques to engage young people in their continuing dialogue on radioactive waste management. ITC researchers identified current best practice in eParticipation, developed appropriate tools to engage young people in Scotland in the debate, and tested these tools in pilot groups across Scotland.

Piloting various tools with groups of young people enabled us to identify that certain technologies supported different aspects of engagement better than others, though there were also differences in preference among the focus groups, according to age. The project outcomes are summarised in the report to the Scottish Executive. See Resources below.
