Announcing the Civic Innovations Hub

The quest for civic education is bigger than ever before. The challenge is to reconcile the demands of an increasingly technology-driven, interdependent and global complexity with the recent rise of populism and democratic retreat. With the Civics Innovation Hub (CIH) we will gather and connect people coming from different countries and divers professional backgrounds, such as life sciences, architecture, business, big-data/digitalization/media, migration and others. In a two-year process CIH will serve as a platform for both, transnational and transdisciplinary exchange and learning for professionals of civic education as well as transfer of civic education tools to other disciplines. The project is supported by the bpb in the context of NECE and initiated by Sofia Platform, Bulgaria and lab concepts, Germany. It will be kick-started in Marseille in September 2018.
