Education for democratic citizenship and human rights creates spaces for young people to develop as active and democratic citizens, concerned with societal issues from the local to the global level, including also the European level. Having citizens that stand up for democracy and human rights is crucial for a peaceful Europe. Education supports young people to become more engaged with the above-mentioned values, bringing positive and democratic change in their communities and in Europe.
This course offers youth workers and other educators an opportunity to define ways to bring young people and Europe closer together. It includes information, reflection opportunities, examples of “how to…” and ideas for activities with young people on the topic of Europe and European citizenship.
At the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
- Explain what is meant by European Citizenship and why it matters for young people
- Bring more European issues in their youth work activities with young people
- Support young people to get engaged more in European issues
- Run activities/projects with young people on European issues
Target Audience: Educators, teachers, youth workers, young activists, students interested in European matters and youth studies students.
