THE GOAL of the Week is to build a loyal attitude towards Citizenship Education providers through demonstrating their potential and popularizing the best Citizenship Education practices in the region.
IMPORTANT OBJECTIVES of the week are also the following:

In frames of the Citizenship Education Week – 2020 organized by EENCE last year more than 120 trainings, discussions, presentations and competitions were held dedicated to citizenship education in the Eastern Partnership countries, as well as in Russia.
Presently, we would like to consolidate and improve these results and continue the tradition of promoting citizenship education through a series of meetings and events open to the general public.
It is important for Citizenship Education Week to incorporate experiences and content based on the impact of the post-pandemic situation.
An important feature of this week will be the opportunity to present and showcase the EENCE member countries.
