DEMOGAMES is a Youth in Action project within the Erasmus+ framework. Through the development of several analogue and digital games, the project will advance knowledge transfer in the field of democracy education. Democracy education enables young people to recognize and represent their interests, to participate in political processes and, in doing so, to meet their fellow human beings and their concerns with respect. The project addresses these issues and uses the didactic approach of game-based learning to engage young citizens with respect to learning about, through and for democracy.
EC, Erasmus+, 2019-2022
The DEMOGAMES project builds on the cooperation between the GIGA (coordinator) and five partner organizations from different European countries. The consortium brings together experienced actors within the fields of youth work, civic education, and democracy research. In line with the GIGA motto “theoria cum praxi” the project contributes to the transfer of academic insights on democracy as well as capacity building in the field of non-formal youth work.
