Mapping civic education in Europe
is the first pan-European attempt at network visualization of civic educators.
With the support of partners in twenty-one European countries, THE
CIVICS team put together a database of almost three thousand actors
informal civic education and
invited them to fill out two online questionnaires.
While the first questionnaire gave valuable insights into the ecosystem of civic education in each of the twenty-one countries, the second one looked into the national networks and connections among the actors. The data was collected throughout 2021 and 2022.
Additionally, the map demonstrates the projects supported by our Civic Innovation Fund. Apart from the financial assistance, these projects attain the status of NECE Impact Spots multiplying the NECE mission in their respective countries.
The first-of-its-kind pan-European civic education map is an online tool that gives visibility to civic educators and allows users to browse and cluster information about organisations based on their geographical location, topics, approaches, and experience.
The map has the potential to inform and support the work of institutions, international and national civil society organisations, philanthropic initiatives, networks, researchers, and policymakers.
