political education

Political education is an important and necessary prerequisite for a person's personal, social and civic participation in society. Political education, as it has always been implemented in youth association work, strengthens our democratic society because it calls on young people to co-determination, solidary self-responsibility and participatory involvement. It relies - as youth associations and rings do in their actions - on compromise to solve problems instead of division. As youth associations and rings, we thus make an essential contribution to a society based on democratic values as part of democratic civil society.

In the field of political education we take responsibility as a member of the Bundesausschuss Politische Bildung (bap) e.V. as well as in the Gemeinsame Initiative der Träger Politischer Jugendbildung (GEMINI) of the bap.
