Civic Engagement in Schools
Civic Engagement explained
The Civic Engagement in Schools project is a developing and effective way to engage with young people and schools to discuss civic engagement. The aim is to assist schools to be an active part of civic society and for Councillors to be an active part of school councils.
Civic Engagement objectives are:
- Innovative ways which inform the consultation process with the views and opinions of young people.
- To demystify civic society for young people and let them explore how they fit in.
- The capacity building of young people to enable them to consider their community and how they can be part of their own community development both in and out of school.
- Empowering young people to be able to make knowledge based choices about the area in which they live.
- To stimulate and increase community based decision making.
- To develop a co-creative approach to the school curriculum with teachers where young people, community members, local organisations and local government present a case to deal with local issues.
- Schools access to Councillors and Councillors access to schools
- To steward and advocate for the beliefs and values that enliven communities.
