First Issue
CE as a subject

Should we "refresh" CE across Europe?
"Citizenship education is part of the curriculum in all countries and is implemented through a subject based stand-alone or integrated) and/or cross-curricular approach. In the vast majority of countries, it is included at all levels of education. However, in a couple of cases, elements related to citizenship education are embedded in the general objectives and values of the education system but there are no requirements for subject-based citizenship teaching nor introducing it through a cross-curricular approach"
(Eurydice Report, 2012, p. 18)
