Active Citizenship in your school
Democracies are more likely to thrive when there is an engaged citizenry who contribute to political and public life. This might be as voters, community leaders or volunteers.
Schools are great places to develop and hone these skills. Help prepare your pupils for life beyond the school gates with our free Active Citizenship Toolkit and Awards offer.
