NECE - Networking European Citizenship Education - Conference

By lab concepts GmbH


Teaser :
The German Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb) and further European partners invite you to this year´s NECE conference “Closing the empowerment gap through citizenship education: How to address educationally disadvantaged groups” from 17 - 19 November 2011 in Warsaw, Poland.

News :

Benjamin R. Barber, president of the NGO CivWorld at Dēmos and internationally renowned political theorist, will deliver the keynote speech at the conference opening on 17 November 2011.
At our conference we will discuss the complex changes regarding civic participation in Europe and its effects on socially disadvantaged groups. On the one hand citizens tend to refrain from traditional political participation. On the other hand a rising number of new ways of getting involved in politics and society i.e. using new media have emerged.
However, these new forms of political involvement are to a large extent determined by the access to education, and by income and skills. Groups with no access to these resources remain widely excluded from participation in civil society and political processes. Socially disadvantaged groups with poor educational opportunities suffer from a conspicuous ‘empowerment gap’.
Experts and activists in the fields of citizenship and cultural education, youth and social workers, NGO representatives will meet in Warsaw to discuss the role of citizenship education in this context. How can citizenship education become a suitable tool for closing the empowerment gap?
