Why Civic Competences are Especially Important
Education for Democratic Citzenship aims to foster initiative, an active role of an individual in public life. This includes a systematic understanding of how one's individual engagement is connected to the society, the political system, or to complex social challenges and is helping citizens/learners to develop a democratic attitude toward other people and groups. All of these abilities are requirements for any successful co-creation and public engagement.
