Bridge 47 participating in the NECE Conference 2019
Bridge 47 is attending the NECE – Networking European Citizenship Education – Conference 2019. NECE is an open transnational and diverse community of stakeholders and practitioners of citizenship education (formal, non-formal and informal education) from Europe and associated countries, providing a forum for debate on equal footing and for knowledge exchange.
This year, the conference will take place in Glasgow and the theme is Confronting Inequalities: The Role of Citizenship Education. NECE 2019 aims to explore the issue of inequalities in the development of young people’s citizenship and political identity. The discussion will centre on how deprivation – in its various forms and especially in the context of widening inequality – affects the way that young people think of themselves as citizens of a city, a country or of the international community.
Bridge 47 will be present at the Conference by having our own stand at the Project Marketplace, where we will tell more about our work and advocacy processes. Our Advocacy Coordinator Megan McHaney will also be co-hosting a panel discussion with the theme Global Citizenship Education? Why and for whom? Critical Perspectives on Global Citizenship Education in a Globalized World at the Conference on Friday 25 October. One of the platform partner members of IDEAS, WOSDEC, is also organising a workshop on the same day, with the theme Educating the Global Citizen in Scotland: Ideals and Realities.
We are looking very forward to the Conference and we are enthusiastic about collaborating, sharing and learning during the day. Hope to meet you there!
The Conference takes place 24-27 October at University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland. You can read more about the Conference from here.
