The NECE – Networking European Citizenship Education platform is a European initiative on citizenship education which has been initiated and managed by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für Politische Bildung, ‘bpb’) together with seven partners from European countries for more than ten years now. Dr. Caroline Hornstein Tomić, chair of ZND’s management board, is a member of NECE’s Advisory board.
NECE is an open transnational and diverse (non institutionalised) community of stakeholders and practitioners (formal, non-formal and informal education) of citizenship education (CE) from Europe and associated countries, providing a forum for debate on equal footing, and knowledge exchange. NECE identifies political, societal trends relevant to CE and develops responses to transfer them into practice. NECE provides a link to advocate CE at the national, European as well as the international level.
