Citizens of Europe e. V. in cooperation with Youth Association DRONI, Education Center ‘POST’, Public Institution ‘Non-formal Education Initiatives’, International Center for Intercultural Research, Learning and Dialogue and AKPO MKO – NGO warmly invite you to apply and participate in our 7 days seminar: Promoting ‘Citizenship’ – what is it all about? The seminar will take place in Berlin, from March 18th until March 24th, 2013.
The concept of ‘Citizenship’ is central to the work of NGOs all over Europe. It ranks high on the agenda of European Institutions not only during the current ‘European Year of Citizens’. And it is of crucial importance especially for the democratic development of the countries in Eastern Europe and in the Caucasus. During this seminar, participants from different parts of Europe will contribute their own experience and points of view on ‘what Citizenship is all about’ and discuss their views with experts and activists.
The aims are to gain a better understanding of the concept, to learn more about the situation elsewhere, and to reflect on our own positions and convictions. As a result, we will develop our own approaches on how to promote citizenship. We also intend to initiate further common activities among the partners involved.
