Call for Projects: Practice Forum "Learning Moral Courage", 29 January 2011, Berlin

The Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung/bpb), the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities, Essen (Kulturwissenschaftliches Institut Essen) and the German Resistance Memorial Center (Gedenkstätte Deutscher Widerstand) are calling for outstanding educational projects to take part in a Europe-wide contest; the winning contributions will be presented on 29 January 2011 at dbb forum berlin, Friedrichstraße 169/170 in Berlin as part of the practice forum, “Learning Moral Courage”.

The practice forum, “Learning Moral Courage” will be taking place after the close of the 3rd International Conference on Holocaust research, “Helpers, Rescuers and Networkers of Resistance” (27/28 January 2011 in Berlin) on 29 January. Both German and European case studies in citizenship education will be presented here. The aim of the practice forum will be to render visible the significance of pro-social behaviour in the present day, to highlight opportunities to take action and to promote awareness of these. Examples will be provided to show how moral courage can be promoted and expressed today. Different spheres of activity on the topic of moral courage will be discussed at the practice forum in the context of civic education’s tasks.
