Civic education is aimed to empower citizens to participate in social and political processes. It is particularly important for us to actively involve the participants in our seminars through participatory methods. The same applies to our materials that focus on the active involvement of the learners.
A thematic focus of our work in the area of civic education lies in European policy. In addition, we carry out projects together with our partners, for example in the area of economic-political education or regarding issues of minorities and majorities in societies.
The multi-level system of the European Union has still a comparatively low level of transparency and appears remote. Therefore, our topic range related to Europe includes theory, institutional and legal frameworks, concrete policy fields, decision-making processes, as well as outlooks on expected developments.
In our seminars and methods, we most frequently deal with the following topics:
Foundations of the European Union
History of European integration
Asylum and refugees policy
Enlargement of the European Union
European Neighborhood Policy
Institutions of the EU
Climate and energy policies
Economic and Monetary Union
Future of the EU
Please also note our role games and simulations, as well as various publications on European political issues.
