EPALE Austria and Erasmus+ Adult Education kindly invite you to this year's conference "Citizenship Education in Austria and Europe: objectives, methods and future prospects" in Vienna.
Adult Education plays a key role in imparting knowledge about democracy, politics, political processes and social structures. The promotion of active citizenship for responsible citizens is an educational policy objective in Europe and an important element for the societal cohesion in a democracy.
What is citizenship education? How and where does it take place? What are thematic key aspects, approaches, methods? How should we structure courses for political education and how can the education of democracy be implemented for adults. These are the central questions of the EPALE Austria conference 2019.
Ideas and methods, which were developed in European projects, will be introduced and tested. The national and international idea and networking pools will cover the following topics: approaches of political education, promotion of active citizenship, integration through adult education as well as empowerment through community based media and promotion of media literacy.
When: 13 June 2019 | 11:00 - 18:00
Where: SkyDome | Schottenfeldgasse 29 | 1070 Vienna
