Description of content

Study your motives for wanting to be an active citizen. What are your drivers? What do you want to accomplish? Design a personal project which will run like a read thread through the modules.

Develop a strong inner center and strong social competencies. Learn to analyze your own and other people’s behavior. Identify your personal values and purpose. Learn to handle dilemmas and reconcile opposing considerations and interests.

How might you commit to engaging in society as an active citizen? And why is such a commitment important in our local and global communities? Study examples of local and global problems that are not being addressed properly yet. Learn how to promote a cause both within a system and from outside a system (using alternative methods). Learn how to make a difference for the benefit of others and yourself.

Learn methods of articulating societal problems and giving voice to people and issues that need to be represented. Learn how to be heard in a debate. Learn methodologies of lobbyism, planning a demonstration, organizing a strike, and designing a happening.
