Tag Archives: Active citizenship

Active citizenship in education refers to the idea that members of nation-states or other entities have certain roles and responsibilities to society and the environment, although those members may not have specific governing roles. In the context of the debate over rights versus responsibilities, it implies that people have certain responsibilities as subjects of the entity that also gives them rights. Active citizens can engage on several levels, e.g. the country or nation-state, the European Union (European citizenship), but also on a global level (global citizenship).
