TASKs for democracy 2nd edition (Pestalozzi Series No. 4)

TASKs for democracy 2nd edition (Pestalozzi Series No. 4)

60 activities to learn and assess transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge!

TASKs for democracy is a handbook of 60 activities, developed within the Council of Europe Pestalozzi Programme Community of Practice, for practitioners in formal and non-formal educational settings to learn and assess the attitudes, skills, values and knowledge needed to support democratic culture.

Democratic culture is more than institutions, laws and procedures. While essential elements of democracy, they do not in themselves make societies democratic: they only work when rooted in what we call “democratic culture” or “a culture of democracy”, the set of attitudes and behaviours required to make democratic institutions and democratic laws function in practice.

Competences for democratic culture are therefore essential for building the kind of society in which we would like to live.

This 2nd edition of TASKs for democracy supports the Reference Framework of Competences for Democratic Culture endorsed by the Council of Europe Standing Conference of Ministers of Education in April 2016.

This publication aims to help build European societies characterised by a culture of democracy and human rights. This is a formidable task and it can only be achieved if European teachers and trainers rise to the challenge with competence and enthusiasm. The collection of learning and “re-learning” activities will support them to promote the development of competences for a democratic culture in their day-to-day educational practice.
