Save the Date: NECE Conference 2018 / 6 - 9 September, 2018
Brave New World? The Future of Democracy and Citizenship Education (working title)



As announced in our NECE newsletter, NECE 2018 will be held in Marseille. For logistical reasons, we have now shifted the conference date to early September 2018. Please save the date!

NECE 2018 will be held in cooperation with partners from all over Europe, including the Goethe Institut Lyon/Marseille.

The programme will be developed over the coming months in close cooperation with NECE partners, the emerging NACE network in North Africa and our new advisory board. We envisage a rich programme that allows space for debate and the controversies surrounding the state of democracy in Europe, and looks at the reasons why some see it as being under threat. The programme will also feature workshops, present local and transnational projects and showcase artistic inputs. All in all, it will provide a great networking opportunity for everybody!

We look forward to getting in touch with you about the programme, and will regularly update pertinent information on our website and in the NECE newsletter.

(Christoph Müller-Hofstede, bpb)
