NECE Conference 2021: COMMITTED TO CHANGE! Reimagining the future of citizenship education in Europe.
28-29 Oct 2021
Les Ateliers des Tanneurs, Brussels | Online
The NECE Conference 2021 will bring the European Citizenship Education community together and ask questions about the future of citizenship, democracy and society and the role of citizenship education. How can education prepare and engage citizens with new forms of participation? How does citizenship education engage with digitalization and sustainable development issues?
With the COVID-19 pandemic, old and new challenges to politics, economy and society become visible. Social inequality, polarisation of public life and power imbalances are gaining ground on regional, national and international levels. The gap between rich and poor has widened, populist and anti-science movements have grown and human-induced climate change continues. How can citizenship education set an agenda and prepare itself for the future, knowing that the next crisis will come?
