Workshop 2

Learning Environment – School

As a learning environment, school formally affords the opportunity to reach educationally disadvantaged young people with citizenship education. To do this, however, it is necessary to find appealing formats and approaches that are able to generate positive learning experiences in order to discern and promote capabilities and skills of the educationally disadvantaged in schools. The workshop presented good practice projects and invites participants to exchange views and to network.
