You can see it in the daily news: Democracy is getting under pressure. However, “democracy needs democrats” (Friedrich Ebert), so it should be a cross-cutting task of schools to raise political mature citizens.
If you want to educate your students in democracy, you don't have to teach politics or humanities. Democratic learning can take place in every subject whether through topics or methods.
We will explore different ways of teaching democracy in different subjects, not only by the choice of topics but also, maybe more important, by choosing methods that support democratic learning. Furthermore, you will develop and share ideas for your lessons.

- You will explore ways of teaching democracy in school
- You will develop ideas how to teach democracy in your own lessons
