Workshop of the EENCE in June 2017: Kick-Off-Event in Bonn

In June 2017, the EENCE had a four-day meeting taking place in Bonn. The workshop’s participants were professionals from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine, involved in a diverse set of organizations from both the public and the non-governmental sector. The program consisted out of thematic inputs, project visits and participative sessions. Further, EENCE members contributed actively to the program by presenting best-practices and own methods.

11-14 June 2017 in Bonn, Germany

The workshop was aiming to achieve the following goals:
  • getting an insight into diverse approaches of civic education and engagement in Germany
  • exchanging and practicing different methods of civic education, e.g. digital education techniques
  • learning about fundraising strategies and getting consultation about how to apply for (bpb-) funds
  • developing multinational cooperation projects
  • networking between the members of the focus groups
  • planning and organizing the working group’s further activities
  • promoting ownership and engagement for EENCE
The initiated cooperation projects will be implemented within the coming months and will be presented on this website in winter 2017. The next EENCE workshop will take place in Warsaw in October 2017.
