SemiFit on Citizenship Education


29 April - 5 May 2019 | Werftpfuhl, Germany

Semifit (Seminar for intercultural trainers) on Citizenship Education is a space for experienced educational practitioners to exchange competences and experiences on areas of Citizenship Education with a focus on quality and trainers' competences.


With this new edition of Semifit we aim to create space for dialogue and innovation around Citizenship Education under the Erasmus+ context. 

We live in a connected world digitally and physically. At the same time we feel more isolated and polarized.
Youth work and Citizenship education have a key role in supporting young people in building democratic capacities, politically relating to emancipation and solidarity, developing consciousness and acting politically. Youth work and CE aim at enhancing participation and self-efficacy, which is seen to be key for developing trust and a standing as citizen in our ever changing societies. The rise of right- wing populism on the one and radicalosation on the other hand finds EDC with young people and youth work in a biased position between democratic competences development and preventing from anti-pluralist and anti-democratic temptation.

Semifit aims to serve as space for educators as learning designers to exchange and develop methods/concepts and projects to do and understand better their cards in Citizenship Educational Work.

Do you support youth participation and power sharing? Are you interested in learning from other practitioners approaches to prevention work? Do you want to engage in dialogue with experienced practitioners on quality and impact in a connected world? Do you have interesting methods and processes for designing learning ventures?
