The Anna Lindh Education Handbook on Intercultural Citizenship in the Euro-Mediterranean Region is a tool to support learning with young people focused on the knowledge and skills to play an active role in civic life at the local and international level.
The Handbook covers both theoretical and practical aspects of intercultural citizenship learning, including practical case-studies from across the Mediterranean region.
The Handbook is divided into 3 main parts. The first is an introduction to concepts, methodologies and education formats related to intercultural citizenship.
The second part provides a more in-depth presentation of the notion of intercultural citizenship education as a reference for educators to better understand and further practically use the concepts and prepare for the learning activities; the notion is broken down into three main inter-linked components: Embracing Diversity, Interacting with the other, Pro-active citizenship building. In order to facilitate the accessibility to these concepts, short case stories/educational practices are introduced in each of the components. Besides, a specific section on “Let’s Debrief”, presenting the main learning objectives for the component, some questions that educators can use to assess their groups’ first understanding of the concepts and activities to stimulate the learners’ reflections and skills through practical, participatory and dialogue- based experiences.
In the third part, “Educational Activities”, educators will find the different activities transversal and applicable as practice in relation to different issues presented in the Handbook.
