What is the ‘EU Democracy in Action’ Toolkit for Schools?
The ‘EU Democracy in Action’ toolkit has been developed by the European Commission to help educators introduce students to basic concepts about democratic participation in the EU; they can also organise activities allowing students to develop the required skills, using the framework of the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI).During the webinar, educators will be:
- Introduced to the European Citizens' Initiative by members of the European Citizens’ Initiative team.
- Presented with an overview of the "EU Democracy in Action" toolkit for schools: What's inside and why does it matter?
- Invited to listen to the teacher testimony: My experience of piloting the “EU Democracy in Action” toolkit for schools.
- Encouraged to participate in a live Q&A session.
How Will the ‘EU Democracy in Action’ Toolkit for Schools Work?
To become active citizens, young people need to understand how democracy works and what their rights and responsibilities are. The ‘EU Democracy in Action’ toolkit introduces pupils to the European Citizens’ Initiative and encourages them to get ready to take an active role as EU citizens.
Through instruction, research, debate, project work, and role play, pupils will learn how laws are made in the EU, how these laws affect their everyday lives, and, most importantly, how the European Citizens' Initiative allows EU citizens to join with others to shape EU policy on issues that they care about.Your Hosts + Guest Speaker
