NECE - Networking European Citizenship Education

NECE is an initiative for networking citizenship education in Europe. A variety of activities have been developed within its framework to encourage the organisation of contacts, co-operation and synergies in the field of citizenship education. NECE is not an institutionalised network, but a forum that allows the spectrum of stakeholders involved in citizenship education to interact with one another. The initiative´s chief goal is to promote the Europeanisation of citizenship education, and to contribute to the creation of a European general public.

NECE Final
Through a number of activities, NECE aims to provide transparency about stakeholders and approaches in citizenship education, and to inspire transnational discussions on the topics and challenges facing the field. It brings together academics, practitioners, and policymakers at the European level, and stimulates knowledge transfer and information exchange on good practices – thereby raising awareness of the impact of citizenship education and fostering co-operation and projects. NECE is primarily directed at practitioners in citizenship and cultural education, along with scholars/experts and trainers. In pursuing its aims, the initiative also reaches out to stakeholders and multipliers from the media, politics and NGOs.

NECE Konferenz 2015 Teaser

NECE Conference 2015: "'Us' and 'Them': Citizenship Education in an Interdependent World"

The focus of the NECE Conference 2015 will be to build on the outcomes of its predecessor event in Vienna, which looked in-depth at conflicts in and around Europe. The jumping-off point for this year’s conference is the proposition that religious, ethnic and cultural perceptions of self and others are playing an increasingly important role in political crises and upheavals, both within Europe and outside its borders.

During a NECE workshop preparing the conference of 2013 in The Hague, some forty participants explored various scenarios about the future of citizenship in Europe. Their inputs were used to create four different future images of Europe in 2030: Great Europe, Network of Nations, Unity of Communities and European Spring. The developed clip functioned as a valuable access for discussions during the conference.
