Hello out there to everybody in front of your smartphones and notebooks,
can you hear us? Yes? … No? That better? Great! Here we go.
Corona, Resilience, Citizenship: Building bridges in times of disruption
The global Corona crisis affects people all over the world: in different respect and to a different extent across and within countries and regions. It challenges governments, politicians, activists, businesses, health – educational and social systems and every citizen worldwide. It forces us to rethink fundamental concerning democracy, governance, cohesion, resilient societies, injustice or solidarity, just to name a few. More than ever, citizenship education is needed to provide reliable and evidence-based information as well as spaces for engagement and discussion for citizens – across borders.
This crisis shows yet again that we live in an interdependent world and that today’s challenges don´t stop at national borders and that they demand transnational responses.
As far as Citizenship Education is concerned we together with colleagues from different countries tried to develop and strengthen transnational exchange, networking and cooperation mostly via meetings, conferences, working groups, festivals, you name it. We took opportunities to meet and get to know one another in person for granted and now have been put on pause.
But facing todays reality it seems more important than ever to stay in touch with colleagues all over the world, share concerns and ideas and discuss recent and coming challenges of the world society through the lense of Citizenship education.
That’s the reason why we want to bring all of you together, to connect with experts and stakeholders from different regions and to take up international co-operations and debates on our new online platform bpb:connect. We feel the urgency just to start and will build it step by step.
We want to test different tools to realize diverse online formats. We will talk to our partners about How do stakeholders in Civic Education organize themselves currently and see most important challenges, we will invite experts to discuss post corona scenarios and will open different online events to the global public with the help of our partners.
Sometimes it might still be bumpy, but we try our best to work together on this idea to keep us connected!
Stay tuned on bpb:connect and join the upcoming online events!
