#Democracy & You
Project days on the topic of democracy and participation opportunities
EUROSOC#DIGITAL offers two consecutive project days on the topic of democracy and participation opportunities throughout Germany as part of #Democracy & You.
On the first day and with the help of appealing, activating methods and group work, various participation opportunities at the local level are addressed. The participants choose a topic that is particularly close to their hearts and decide which of the thematic forms of participation is best suited for putting their concerns on the political agenda. They develop their own campaigns on their topic. The campaigns are presented to politicians from the catchment area of the participating schools and discussed afterward. In addition, basic knowledge about the European Union and its possibilities for participation will be addressed in a playful way.
On the second day, the participants experience one of these opportunities for participation at the European level first hand:
In a simulation game on the consultation procedure of the European Commission, they negotiate from the perspective of European stakeholders on the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy, a policy field of the EU that has great potential to significantly shape our future as Europeans. The participants experience that it is necessary to reach compromises in a pluralistic society and can train their argumentation skills
