Moderation: Narine Teknejan, Youth is Power, Armenia
A functioning citizenship education system and the implementation of corresponding conceptual approaches developed at the legislative level are crucial for overcoming the national economic crisis in Ukraine. At the same time, several other issues related to eliminating the inequality of the county’s citizens remain no less relevant. The fulfilment of the peoples’ expectations regarding the solution of these complex issues will be central to the credibility of the newly elected President and the parliamentary majority of his ruling party.
We will show different examples of how the formal and non-formal education sectors participate in the development of civic education in Ukraine. Special attention will be paid to the role youth actors. How can we arrive at strategies for developing a sustainable bottom-up structure in citizenship education in Ukraine and other transformation countries?
