Workshop 6

Learning Environment – Non-formal Citizenship Education II

Citizenship education offerings will only achieve their aim when they meet the needs and interests of, and strike a chord with, the people they intend to reach. Accordingly, knowledge of values, attitudes, living environments and life circumstances of the different target groups is an indispensable requirement for devising and positioning educational offerings. In this context, life-world and social environment-based approaches will be considered during this workshop, from youth social work on the one hand for example, and as a learning environment on the other hand, in order to determine what contribution these approaches can render to reaching educationally excluded target groups in extracurricular citizenship education.
