ABOUT NECE

The NECE – Networking European Citizenship Education platform is a non-institutionalised European initiative for citizenship education. It has been initiated and is managed by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung/ bpb) in cooperation with citizenship education partners and the NECE Advisory Board.

NECE is a transnational community of stakeholders and practitioners (formal, non-formal and informal education) of citizenship education (CE) from across Europe. It works with corresponding networks in the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe and Africa. It provides a forum for debate and an opportunity to exchange knowledge on an equal footing.

Independent of political constellations and as non- partisan institutions, we identify political, societal and cultural trends to build common strategies for citizenship education.

The long-term NECE partner organisations are cooperating closely across national borders and consist of a wide variety of different governmental and non-governmental institutions from European countries.
