2017/2018 DARE members work on the question how education could respond on current political trends such as populism or post-truth. We discuss these issues from an organisational perpective, taking into account the shrinking spaces for civil society, but as well on the level of concrete pedagogical work.
A project which exemplary study policies, frames, settings and conditions for citizenship education with children aged 8 to 12 in six European countries Besides identifying policy frames, approaches, concepts and existing practice the project aims at supporting educational staff with exemplary materials which support interactive, fun, innovative, multilingual democratic learning.

The second phase of DARE network was a EU Lifelong Learning supported GRUNDTVIG network focussing on fostering the capacities of DARE members and the field of non-formal EDC/HRE on three levels:
The DARE network was successfully established by support of the EU Socrates program as GRUNDTVIG network from 2003-2006.
The fund enabled the participating organisations for developing common working groups on policy and for the exchange of pedagogical concepts with the ambition to support the European cooperation of Adult learning organisations in EDC/HRE work and foster the dialogue on European policy development for the sector.
During 2005 the European NECE conference was organised in Berlin with DARE as partner.
