About this event

In celebration of 25 years since the publication of the groundbreaking Crick Report, we are delighted to be hosting a special live round-table event with our Honorary President, The Rt Hon. the Lord Blunkett.

The session will feature a panel discussion with key figures from the Citizenship education community, the latest findings from academics and opportunities to discuss the future of our vital subject.

Discussion points will include:

  • How can we get citizenship education back on the agenda and strengthen its presence in all schools?
  • What more can we do to influence education policy to better support Citizenship education?
  • Should Citizenship education look different in the future?
