Panel: Unavailable and inaccessible? Schools closures and students’ voice
Our intention in this workshop is to explore the impact of recent school closures on young citizens’ active participation. We will have the opportunity to discuss the opportunities that the various forms of emergency schooling which were available during the lockdown offered for meaningful exchange of students’ views and for exploration of the unfolding social and political reality.
This workshop will be the first in a series of events which will explore the impact of the pandemic and school closures on young citizens’ educational needs and will consider the potentials of citizenship education to respond to those.
