Introducing the Core Set of the Cards for Democracy Series
Many of you, dear readers, may already know our Cards for Democracy. Up to now we had a pack for teachers and education professionals. These cards have been well received and used in many training events to reflect on and develop democratic practices in formal and nonformal education contexts.
We are happy that our members have had the opportunity to download them and use them in their classrooms in schools, universities, NGOs and teachers’ associations.
The news today is that we are ready to issue a NEW PACK that will now become the ‘central’ pack of the Cards for Democracy series. It is a tool to develop competences for democratic culture to be used by anyone in any context:
It all starts with me!
What are my values? Are they democratic?
Do I practice my values or am I a living inconsistency?
What are the democratic values that are identified as important by others around me?
Are the practices, actions and behaviors of actors in my community in line with these values or not? How so?
What needs to be done to change any inconsistency?
We will unveil this new tool in an online LIVE event to which we invite you:
In this event we will present the Cards for Democracy and some activities they may be used for facilitating learning in the classroom and elsewhere, with young and older learners (students, family members, coworkers, etc.).
We hope to meet many of you there! Here’s the LINK.
