myPart Workshops for Civic Education
A curriculum for a series of five workshops on civic education will be developed. It focuses on the needs of people with intellectual disabilities regarding their political and public participation, the target groups are people with intellectual disabilities and trainers working with people with intellectual disabilities. The workshops aim at gaining more or new citizenship competencies. The topics of the workshops are: Civil Rights, Basics of Democracy, European Values, Choice and Decision-making Processes, Political Participation: Having a voice.
For modules 2 (What is democracy?), 3 (European values) and 4 (Choice and decision-making processes) we also provide PowerPoints here:
myPart Handbook (easy-to-read)
The handbook is the practical tool for the workshops and will be written in easy to read and understand language so that people with intellectual disabilities have practical material for the workshops at hand. This tool can be used during the workshops as a training handbook but also for deepening the contents individually. It will also contain a toolkit related to (self-) advocacy.
The videos cover topics from the workshops. You can learn more about these topics through the films. And you can discuss them. The films contribute to that all people understand better what political participation means.
