What is OnGea ?
OnGea is a three-year project (1. September 2015 - 31. August 2018) and provides digital tools for youth work, particularly youth events, international youth meetings and youth organisations. It will be made of a website, where organisers will have access to intern modules to organise their projects (schedules, travels, accommodations…) and to recruit participants though an Activity Module. It will be related to a Mobile App for the participants (both working on iOS and Android) which will enable them to apply for a project, plan their arrival, keep track of the activity program, to get reminders of group meetings and more. All these tools will be available in more than 10 languages thanks to a specific design and a multilingual system implemented by all the international partners of the project.
The complete OnGea system will be provided as an open source tool free of charge for all youth work organisations and networks.
OnGea website system and app were tested and developed in 2017 by the project consortium, and in 2018, the finished versions are going to be published.
OnGea is funded by the EU program ERASMUS + and coordinated by ROOTS & ROUTES Cologne e. V. The development of the application OnGea was also financed by the youth ministry of the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The partners of the project are: ROOTS & ROUTES international association, ROOTS & ROUTES (Netherlands), Smouth (Greece), Subjective Values Fundation (Hungary), Brouhaha International (UK), Centro di Creazione e Cultura (Italy), Les Têtes de l'Art (France), Rutes i Origens (Spain), Kaunas Cultural Center of Various Nations (Lituania) and Euroest (Romania).
