The New Civics Early Career Scholars Program and the Civic and Moral Education Initiative, in partnership with the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, will host a conference May 3 & 4 on "Creating Civic Competence: The Critical Challenges."
There is, worldwide, rapidly increasing interest in preparing youth for effective civic engagement, and growing attention to civic challenges locally and globally. The definition of civic participation is expanding. Where can rich civic education be found, how can it be promoted and developed? The Conference will draw on the innovative work of the HGSE community of civic researchers, with commentaries from distinguished senior scholars in the field.
