Where are practical benefits and limitations? An extensive field study and practice test allowed to draw findings for the field of cooperation between different sectors of learning, for using the RFCDC as a tool to support peer-learning, and as a reflection instrument for the design and conduction of non-formal learning processes, of educational practice and to support educators in EDC/HRE reflecting about their role and position in learning and educating, for, through and and about democracy.Continue reading “Competences for Democratic Culture and non-formal Education”
