Education for Active and Democratic Citizenship is a collaborative task of civil society organizations, institutions of formal education such as schools or universities, or of responsible citizens within their fields of everyday life. COMPETENDO invites those as experts and partners who share these ideas. We want to make good practice in Democratic Citizenship Education accessible and inspire teachers and facilitators. We link to resources and changemakers. Without sharing there is no innovation. With sharing these actors in the field of Democratic Citizenship Education build evidence and gain impact collectively.
