Democracy is a constant challenge for all of us. Civic education provides us with an attitude, knowledge and skills to meet this challenge.

Our Vision

Our vision is a vibrant and strong democracy in Switzerland, in Europe and beyond.


Civic education

We understand civic education as education that has democracy as its theme and lives up to democratic values and principles.

Expertise

Democratic values, Swiss democracy, innovative methods such as game-based learning, and current concepts such as the Council of Europe's Framework of Reference form our focus.
