Active citizenship

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesConference


NERA 2010 has a particular focus on active citizenship. Active citizenship and citizenship education have often been seen as having the potential to empower individuals, to both use opportunities to participate in public life at various levels, and to meet their civic obligations. The benefits of citizenship education and the development and exercise of active citizenship can thus be seen as the ability to consider differing perspectives and divergent values from individual to group level, from local to global level, and to take action on political and ethical decisions that are often controversial, concerning, for example, environmental issues and social justice.
