Upcoming Events


3 – 7 December, 2018

NACE is honoured to announce that the third Civic Education Conference (CEC) will be take place in Morocco from 3rd till 7th December 2018, where Europe meets the Arab World and the interaction on cultural, social, ecological and political base can happen. The first CEC, which was insprired by NECE (Networking Citizenship Education) and organized by the Goethe-Institut, was launched in December 2013 and took place in Alexandria, Egypt. In total, more than 200 participants from various sectors and different countries participated in the CEC.  They all discussed over 60 recommendations that should serve as a basis for the development of the sector. Three years later, the second CEC took place from 13 to 15 May 2016 in Tunis, Tunisia. Most participants of the first conference were reunited to discuss the urgent need for a umbrella network and finally to establish the platform CEC. With the implementation of CEC’s third version, NACE hopes to seize the opportunity to bring together as many stakeholders and Civic Educators as possible this year. We are looking forward to interesting encounters, exciting panels and fruitful discussions.
As soon as we have more detailed information we will provide it on our website: www.nacecommunity.org   and will share it with you within our next NACE News. Stay tuned!

NECE Conference 2018// Brave new Worlds?! The Future of Democracy and Citizenship Education

6 – 9 September, 2018

As announced in the NECE Newsletter, the NECE Conference 2018 will be held in Marseille. For logistical reasons, we have now shifted the conference date to early September 2018. Please save the date! NECE 2018 will be held in cooperation with partners from all over Europe, including the Goethe Institut Lyon/Marseille.  The programme will be developed over the coming months in close cooperation with NECE partners, the emerging NACE network in North Africa and our new advisory board.  We envisage a rich programme that allows space for debate and the controversies surrounding the state of democracy in Europe, and looks at the reasons why some see it as being under threat. The programme will also feature workshops, present local and transnational projects and showcase artistic inputs. All in all, it will provide a great networking opportunity for everybody! We look forward to getting in touch with you about the programme, and will regularly update pertinent information on our website and in the NECE Newsletter
