Education for Democratic Intercultural Citizenship (EDIC)

    Project Details


    The programme actively wants to enhance the cooperation between European universities. The focus is on intensive cooperation between students and teachers.

    An Intensive programme is a strong vehicle to support collaboration of universities in a multinational context. Global and European developments of more intensive collaboration, exchange, flexibility and mutual interdependency have a significant influence on education. Education is challenged to prepare youngsters for this future world.

    Our intensive programme focuses in particular on social, cultural and political dimensions of these developments, on developing a democratic intercultural citizenship.

    Education plays a central role in preparing youngsters for democratic society, for active participation and greater social justice and tolerance in all aspects of society. There are concerns in many countries about democracy. Active participation, and in particular social integration and new ways of getting youngsters involved, are investigated everywhere.
