Aims & Purpose

Our Mission, Vision and Purpose


Mission

The aim of Active Citizen Europe (ACE) is to foster the integration of children within society, through innovative and participatory programmes, capacity building, advocacy, intercultural work, digital literacy and the promotion of a multipronged citizenship education


Vision

"Engaging young people in shaping local and global communities for an integrated and democratic world"


Purpose

Young people should be given tools and safe space to engage in dialogue that nurtures gender equality, freedom of thought and speech, and democratic engagement. We pioneer community-based programmes for young people to encourage integration and prevent marginalisation. Citizenship should be active and inclusive, accepting and empathising with difference to encourage societal harmony. We believes in addressing the factors that cause identity conflict head-on. We develop projects that encourage openness to identifying and challenging institutionalised discrimination and practices that promote or sustain identity hierarchies (dominant culture as superior)  and which can devalue the cultures of newcomers.
