Challenging Inequalities

Starting from 2019, civic and citizenship education represents one of the main thematic focus areas of the CCP. Within the focus on civic and citizenship education, CCP aims to promote and facilitate cross-regional, interdisciplinary and transcultural exchange, to ensure a lasting and purposeful knowledge transfer as well as to deepen and expand the CCP Alumni Network. With this initiative, CCP aims to intensify the exchange between civil society actors, strengthen civil societies across the world, and help create long-lasting partnerships ranging from Central, South and Southeast Asia to countries of Eastern Partnership and Russia, North Africa, the Near and Middle East and Latin America and the Caribbean region.

The workshop will be facilitated by renowned experts in the field of civic education, Nelly Corbel (executive board member, NACE) and Susanne Ulrich (CAP, LMU Munich). It will focus on Gender Empowerment, Deradicalization and Antidiscrimination as well as Social Entrepreneurship. 

Selected sessions of the event will be live-streamed on the ifa Youtube channel as well as within the framework of the Eastern European Network for Citizenship Education (EENCE) citizenship education week 'The Art of Living Together'. The livestreams are freely accessible to anyone interested.
