Cooperation, solidarity and interdependence emerged as crucial in the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the crisis not only pushed people to more solidarity, but it also revealed systemic issues in how societies are organized.

DARE – Italian strategies for Global Citizenship Education

The International Cooperation Centre completed the translation of the document that defines the Italian multi-stakeholder and multi-level strategy on GCE. The translation – realised thanks to the financial contribution of AICS, within the project Nuove narrazioni per la cooperazione (New Narratives for International Cooperation) – is still unofficial, as it waits for the formal approval by the numerous subjects involved in the drafting of the original document in Italian.

Confronting Inequalities: The Role of Citizenship Education

Set against the ongoing drama of Brexit, NECE is coming to Glasgow in an attempt to explore the issue of inequalities and their effects on the development of young people’s political identity. We are particularly interested in the way in which deprivation (especially in the context of widening inequality) affects the thinking of young people with regard to themselves as citizens of a city, a country or of the international community.
If citizenship education supplies knowledge and promotes participation among structurally disadvantaged groups, […]
