This article examines the importance of educational processes for creating a new, conscious, and participatory citizenship, paramount to strengthen democracies today. We will observe these complex interconnections through a qualitative methodology based on an introductory theoretical study on plural and participatory citizenship. We will then anchor it to an overview of the educational strategies implemented in Europe and Latin America based on official documents by the various bodies of these two geographical macro-areas or supranational organisms, such as UNESCO, concerning both countries.

Abstract

This article examines the importance of educational processes for creating a new, conscious, and participatory citizenship, paramount to strengthen democracies today. We will observe these complex interconnections through a qualitative methodology based on an introductory theoretical study on plural and participatory citizenship. We will then anchor it to an overview of the educational strategies implemented in Europe and Latin America based on official documents by the various bodies of these two geographical macro-areas or supranational organisms, such as UNESCO, concerning both countries. In the conclusions, this comparison will highlight coinciding interests in strengthening educational projects to promote participatory citizenship, despite differences at the national and supranational level between the two regional contexts.
