Module 3 of the qualification programme »Career entry to the field of civic education and youth work« was entitled »Democracy«
Democracy education is the essence of political education and the EJBW also carries the guiding question: »What strengthens and what endangers democracy?«.
»Democracy« was also the topic of the 3rd module of the further education series in the qualification programme »Career Entry into Political Education and Youth Work«, which took place on 17 and 18 October 2020.
Thaer Issa and Shilan Ahmed from the Muslim Bildungswerk für Demokratie (MNDB) e.V. Erfurt presented the game »Quararo« at the seminar. The participants dealt with different decision-making processes and practised a special form of decision-making, »systemic consensus«.
In the second part of the weekend, the participants reflected on their own behaviour in decision-making processes in the group – and juggled along the way!

Module 2 focused on the topic »Diversity«
On the weekend of 3rd and 4th October 2020 we had the pleasure to welcome Kerem Atasever, Education Officer at the Youth Education Centre Kaubstraße Berlin, as a speaker. Together with Margaux Richet and the prospective professionals in political education, he dealt with the issue of diversity and one’s own identity. Experience-based exercises stimulated deep reflection with one’s own perception as well as group processes and exclusion.
