Open Call for CEWG Members

Join the next CEWG! (2)

Are you passionate about Civic Education, especially about the Sustainable Development Goals and debating? Would you like to improve your skills by working in an international team, collaborate with many locals and European Bodies in order to organize events and activities connected to the focus are of civic education? Then you are the person we are looking for!

What is a Working Group?

The Working Group makes sure that the Action Agenda for the focus area of Civic Education gets implemented. This means organizing activities on its own (e.g. conferences, trainings, online actions), promoting the focus area (via Facebook, newsletter, and through workshops at statutory events and NWMs) and supporting locals in organizing activities related to the focus area (e.g. providing ideas for content).

To know more about the Working Groups, see the section “Working Group Rules” in the CIA.

The Focus Area of Civic Education has the aim to promote civic education by increasing the civic competences of young people and by putting civic education on the political agenda.

More concretely, in the year 2018-2019, the Working Group will work with the Action Agenda objectives which are the following:
1. Facilitate 30 activities in high schools on Civic Education.
2. Carry out at least 30 activities to promote the Sustainable Development Goals.
3. Organize at least 20 activities aimed at developing debating skills.

Besides the objectives, the Working Group members are also free to work on other projects in- and outside of AEGEE that can support the work of our association in this focus area.
