Learning for Democracy

Making Politics Educational – The Role of Community Learning and Development

We are delighted to invite you to the third in a series of professional learning sessions on Learning for Democracy aimed at community learning and development (CLD) practitioners from across the public, voluntary and community sectors. This follows on from two very positive sessions held last year which addressed the role of community education in political education (Edinburgh) and the issue of political inequality and its implications (Glasgow).
This session will focus on the demand for learning practical ways in which educational work around political and democratic issues can be developed, looking at examples of what has worked in a range of contexts and settings. It will also help to examine a range of processes and techniques which can be adapted to be used in different places.
The event will include a range of speakers and practical workshops which will address the following areas:

Date: Wednesday 22 March 2017
