DARE BLUE LINES: EDC for All - Qualifying and Mainstreaming Education for Democratic Citizenship in Europe.

The new DARE BLUE LINES publication "EDC for All" comprises experiences and key findings from the project "EDC for All - qualifying and mainstreaming Education for Democratic Citizenship within Europe".The project aims at the transfer of EDC relevant policies, methods and support mechanisms in an European context and has targeted on developments in 3 key areas:

Within "EDC for All"
* policy concepts from the European level 
of the COE have been explored, transferred and applied to the national contexts of Portugal and Germany,

* new educational easy accessible games on the concepts of justice and inclusion have been created, published and tested extensively within the project: JA!Do - a dice game and S*intro - a card game. Both games deal with a situative approach and support the development of ambuigity-tolerance, empathy and the experience of self-efficacy. They contribute to development of social and civic skills by creating a space of emotional- experiences and reflection regards to the concpets of justice, fairness, equality, access and solidarity.

* peer visits to and reviews of places of EDC with young people in Europa and Germany have helped to contribute for a strategy development for the creation of an EDc youth centre in the municipality of Sintra/PT.

The DARE Blue Lines " EDC for All" takes stock on the  projects effects in relation to European EDC and youth policies and gives conrcete recommendations based on the  results gained.

DARE BLUE LINES are a series of reports on EDC issues affecting the world of formal and non-formal education. They are free to further use and aim to feed the discourse on EDC/HRE from a non formal educational perspective.
