Success in the Mediterranean region for citizenship education practices at school: total engagement for preventing violence and to promote the values of gender equality

Throughout 2017 the Forming Responsible Citizens (FRC) project has been setting up a big community in the Mediterranean region: today the FRC is carrying on its activities in Tunisia, Morocco, Jordan and Lebanon.

The project identifies schools as a key vehicle to build the future in the region and to share with new generations such democratic values as juvenile violence prevention, equality, conflict resolution, and respect for the environment, solidarity and much more.

The project is organized in three main phases. Firstly, a study to reveal the strengths and weaknesses of citizenship education in the school system, secondly, to work on the development of new methods to improve the quality of the impact of citizenship education at school, and finally teacher training and the implementation of activities with the students.

Through daily practice in citizenships clubs in their schools, children between the age of 12 and 16 learn how to practice solidarity and increase their responsibility awareness. They also improve their knowledge of their rights and their duties, and they develop the necessary self-esteem and willpower to succeed in life through teamwork, and via the organization and management of their own projects.

These school activities are currently in their second year of practice in Tunisia and will begin very soon in Morocco. Meanwhile Lebanon and Jordan are starting the diagnostic phase.

Follow the FRC project’s Facebook page. This is going to be an amazing year with lots of updates such as diagnostic studies and testimonies of teachers, students and experts in education.
