The discussion will bring together policymakers and civil society in order to present concrete examples of how teachers and educators are contributing to the democratic culture in class and in their communities, what are the major obstacles and what can be a policy response to them.
Additionally, taking into account the upcoming European elections and rising influence of far-right and Eurosceptic parties, it is of utmost importance to bring the role of formal and nonformal education and educators who promote democracy, solidarity and peace (Core values of the EU) in the centre of the discussions.
