Access to Citizenship Education: contributions by David Kerr and Erik Flügge

During the second day of our conference we all gathered in the Theatre Hall to listen to the lectures made by two speakers - Erik Flugge (Sinus Institute, Berlin) and David Kerr (Educational Programmes at the Citizenship Foundation, London) - connected by the common topic: "Access to (Citizenship) Education and its Impact for Political and Civic Participation.

What’s on your mind? Questions from the Conference Opening

  • What do we have to offer if we can’t be satisfied with the state of democracy as it is?
  • Is citizenship education enough to close the empowerment gap?
  • Is civic education part of the problem? Are we still able to criticise ourselves and are we open enough to give criticism a forum?
  • How can we take care of different minority groups in a ‘collapsing’ system?
  • Why are we dividing society in ‘advantaged’ and ‘disadvantaged’ groups?
  • How to connect different groups with social media and new technologies?
