Proposal for a EACE entered the European Parliament

The Proposal for the European Agency for Citizenship Education (EACE) has successfully entered the European Parliament. A group of six Members of the European Parliament from the Socialists & Democrats party group submitted the proposal in an amendment to the opinion “Citizens’ dialogues and Citizens’ participation in the EU decision-making”, which will be voted on in the CULT committee at the European Parliament in March 2021.

The Parliamentarians also submitted amendments covering recommendations from the discussion paper on the EACE such as the development of a comprehensive strategy for a European policy on citizenship education and the development of funding programmes for non-formal and informal citizenship education.
