Civic Education

Civic education aims at learning the competences, i.e. skills, knowledge and attitudes, required to be an active, democratic, responsible and critical citizen. Its ultimate goal is to educate the population on democratic citizenship and make them aware of their rights and responsibilities. There are many subtopics connected to civic education, such as: Intercultural communication, Media literacy and hate-speech online, Interreligious communication, Functioning of EU institutions, Political knowledge, Critical thinking, Human rights education, Participation in elections and democratic decision-making, Environmental sustainability, Citizens’ rights and duties, Global education, etc.
