The workshop provides an introduction to the Council of Europe’s Reference Framework Competences for Democratic Culture (RFCDC). Members of the NECE focus group “Competences for Democratic Culture” share their experiences with the implementation of the RFCDC in their diverse national and educational contexts. Participants of the workshop get familiar with the elements of the reference framework in an interactive setting that will allow them to apply the tool in their own contexts.
In the second part of the workshop, participants will explore the potential of the reference framework in working with disadvantaged children and adolescents: What can the RFCDC do in concrete terms to counteract inequalities and promote inclusion?
