The CRC-W is part of a European consortium that has received funding of €3,250,000 for the development of the project "ENGAGED - Political and community engagement, trust and identity among European adolescents and emerging adults".

The project will develop and validate measures on adolescents’ and emerging adults’ social, cultural and political identity, in different groups, their participation in physical and online communities, their interest in democratic participation and their trust in democratic institutions.

A key focus here will be to explore adolescents’ and young adults’ participation in communities on social media platforms to learn where and how they communicate their political and community engagement. Finally, the project will develop policy initiatives with adolescents and emerging adults and policy makers using the Co-Create Dialogue Forum tool, including piloting of strategies in Living Labs. Marginalized groups will be given particular emphasis in the analyses to identify need for specific focus in policy development strategies.
