The University of Western Australia will host the third panel, which will center on the gendered dimensions of environmental security. Pulling in topics from the previous two panels, this discussion will emphasize how gender affects and is affected by environmental conflict dynamics, and what that means for potential solutions.

Education for democratic citizenship in turbulent times – Meeting and understanding in the Global Risk Society

2. Dezember 2020 - 18:51

Civic education depends on real encounter between people: it is about connecting people and ideas, of sharing experiences and new insights. It shows various perspectives and offers competence in explaining, evaluating and analyzing. At the end there is an informed, independently acting, effective, and responsible citizen who evolves into a political subject.

 

This evolution is currently more necessary than ever.

Encounters and exchange between people are more than necessary.

But how does that work in times of Corona? Is it possible at all?

 

On December 3rd 2020 we want to show that civic education does not have to sit frozen like a deer in the headlights of a car. Using new tools enables us to still organize encounters, to facilitate exchange, to give room to controversy and promote enlightened political action, even under the conditions of a global pandemic.

 

Doing just that, we take a glance at ‘Climate crisis’, ‘International upheavals’ and the ‘Status quo of Solidarity within the EU’. Together with actors of civic education, dealing with these current political topics, we explore the advantages and disadvantages of digital tools and the virtual learning environment. Furthermore we discuss what the digitalization of political discourse and the mediatization of political communication affords. Is civic education in a virtual environment capable of finding the right answers? Which options are transported by the new digital formats and what are their tensions and possibilities for our work?

 

We want to discuss these topics in a panel of experts from various countries and fields of expertise on Thursday, December 3rd. The Zoom conference starts at 10.00 a.m.

 

Thomas Krüger, President of the Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb), will outline his ideas on ‘Civic education in turbulent times’ and will be happy to discuss with the audience after his opening speech.

 

From 1.00 p.m. on we want to cast a spotlight on three topics in subsequent forums.
