The 10th CIED Meeting - Interdisciplinary Center for Educational Studies, of the School of Higher Education in Lisbon, will take place on November 11 and 12, 2021, with the theme “Citizenship: paths, processes and challenges in the 21st century”. Citizenship, as a concept, practice and attitude, will be at the center of reflection and debate that will seek to involve agents who intervene in contexts of formal, non-formal and informal education.
The idea of citizenship, as we conceive it today, was born from the structural change brought about by the French Revolution (1789), and has been built over centuries and generations, with advances and setbacks in its definition and practice. Nowadays, what does it mean to be a citizen or to practice acts of citizenship? It is these and other issues that, starting from the educational field, but which extend to the community and the idea of ​​human life, will be launched at this meeting, especially in light of the challenges that the 21st century presents.
The Meeting has three thematic axes that offer a broader participation of researchers, teachers, animators, students and other agents linked to formal and non-formal education around the idea of ​​citizenship.
The first axis is dedicated to citizenship in education and aims to debate approaches around Education for Citizenship; the second axis focuses on citizenship and the community, focusing on the dimension of non-formal education; and the third axis is that of citizenship and sustainability, which calls for a holistic look at sustainable life and its relationship with the exercise of citizenship, limitations and potential.
