Ideaborn, in collaboration with the Union for the Mediterranean Secretariat, is pleased to announce the Regional Seminar “Civic Education for Youth in the Mediterranean” scheduled to be held in Barcelona on 28-29 June 2018. The Seminar will focus on the central role of citizenship education in the current emerging challenges in the region, such as the prevention of violence, radicalisation and the promotion of gender equality.
The Seminar will unfold under the framework of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) labelled regional project “Forming Responsible Citizens” (FRC) which has been implemented since 2015 in Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, and Lebanon with the financial support of the governments of Norway and Monaco.
The two-day event will be the platform to further discuss the critical role of civic values education in forming responsible and engaged youth and will offer the opportunity to share experiences and good practices and to advocate for civic education policies. It will also be the occasion to present the main achievements and recommendations emerged from the FRC project and explore measures to further sustain the project outcomes and results.
The programme of the Seminar responds to three objectives, namely:
- To share challenges and recommendations regarding civic education programmes implementation across the Euro-Mediterranean region and mainstream best practices
- To explore sustainable avenues for capacity building and the contribution of different stakeholders
- To investigate regional perspectives on prevention of youth radicalisation through civic education
