Aktionstage Politische Bildung 2018

From April 23 to May 9, Austria will once again focus on citizenship education. This year, there will be special activities in all nine federal states and additionally online offers. Main target groups are teachers, students, pupils and multipliers. In addition, the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and implementation options for teaching will be presented as part of this year's Citizenship Days.

Due to the genocides and crimes committed in the Second World War the protection of fundamental and human rights received great attention, which the United Nations (UN) immediately adopted after the end of the war. With the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (AEMR) of 1948, many UN member states agreed for the first time on a worldwide catalog of values.
