Join the initiative
We wish to form an alliance of national and European politicians, civil society organizations, citizenship education practitioners and academics to jointly advocate for the proposal of the EACE
A board alliance of supportive individuals and organisations from the field of citizenship education, can succeed in illustrating the urgency we face to secure European values. Let’s jointly bring the need for investments in citizenship education to the attention of EU decision-makers. If we join forces EU decision-makers will need to listen and implement the proposal for a European Agency for Citizenship Education.
Anyone that complies with the European values as set out in article 2 TEU is welcome to join VALUES UNITE.
“If we don’t strengthen European action in the field of European citizenship education, we are limiting the capacity of Europeans to fully participate in the democratic life of the Union, which is their right. A European Agency for Citizenship Education could contribute to ensure that citizens have the knowledge to fully participate in shaping the future of the European Project.”
Domènec Ruiz Devesa MEP
Deputy for the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party to the European Parliament and Spokesperson for the Socialists & Democrats Group in the Constitutional Affairs Committee

“Democracy isn’t only in the letter of the law, it is in the aspirations, imaginations and actions of the citizens. A European Agency for Citizenship Education could finally help everyone living on this continent find their own agency in inventing a common and more humane European future.”
