Cards for Democracy for All
Cards for Democracy for All are a set of 60 cards intended for individuals, on their own and in groups, to reflect on their intention, and nurture a disposition to examine and improve their attitudes, skills, knowledge and understanding to better contribute to creating democratic spaces and improve their own practices and behaviors for co-constructing a more just and happy society.
The cards identify and describe key actions that people can develop to better act in a society in which democracy is a process that is inclusive of all human beings. Through the activities and the games we can play with the cards, we realize that each and every individual has a responsibility to support inclusive and democratic ways of living together.
The Cards are available for free under a Creative Commons license. Please read the product description for further details and instructions on how to download.
How were they created?
60 educators (teachers, professors, school-heads…) collaborated for some 6 years to develop learning activities that help nurture a democratic environment.
We realized that whether the topic, whether it was teaching history, civics, language etc. There was a core set of learning outcomes that were the same in each area.
We decided to work on finding what these core elements were.
Once we had found the core competences, we set off to identify what observables behaviors we could engage in that would show that we possess the competences: the cards are the behaviors we can display do in different contexts.
«It all starts with me!»
