Education for Democratic Citizenship

image012The Conference of European Churches supports education that encourages open and democratic perspectives on European society. Education is a core means for promoting values of peace and reconciliation, intercultural dialogue, and democratic participation in European society.

In this area, CEC monitors and contributes to the work of the European Institutions. We are also in the process of co-organising a pilot project for teachers in church-related kindergartens in several European countries. The project will focus on developing intercultural and interreligious competences.

For more information about our work in this area, please contact Rev. Sören Lenz.
