Austrian Citizenship Days
The Austrian Citizenship Days are an annual nationwide campaign (each year between 23 April and 9 May) in order to raise and strengthen public awareness of citizenship education in Austria. As an initiative by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research the Citizenship Days are coordinated by polis – The Austrian Centre for Citizenship Education in Schools.
Together with local cooperation partners nine so-called federal state days are organized, which covers different topics and approaches of citizenship education – from rememberance, about thinking together cultural and citizenship education to workshops, guided tours, networking meetings and discussion events.
On those eight days, on which no federal state day takes place, online-offers will be pronounced.
