NECE Campus „Reconnecting in a post pandemic world. Citizenship education for democracy and sustainability“

#digitalNECE #NECEcampus

The main purpose of the NECE conference 2020 and its preparatory process is to create spaces for transnational networking, dialogue and learning, centred around the ideas and practices of citizenship education. This process includes a variety of stakeholders, activists, academic experts and practitioners.

A NECE CAMPUS, starting on June 10 and active until November, will create digital spaces for an interactive process to prepare the NECE conference in Berlin, November 5 -7 2020. Be it webinars, panel discussions, training sessions or bar camps – the NECE CAMPUS will use all possibilities of the virtual space to discuss visions, values and practices for an educational and civic engagement in a post-pandemic world and to create a community for the NECE conference in November.

Working with experts, trainers and practitioners, we want to introduce skills and tools that may help us to work together in digital spaces – without forgetting the invaluable role of real-life human interaction for democracies.

The NECE CAMPUS aims at offering opportunities and trainings for building trust and a collaborative spirit among the often-fragmented actors in citizenship education and civil society.
