A Transatlantic
Dialogue of Civic

Connecting US-American and German civic learning professionals

About TECE

Investing in comprehensive civic learning is critical for the future health of our democracies as both Germany and the United States face significant challenges: structural racism, right-wing populism, polarization and mistrust of democratic institutions and the media, not to mention a strained transatlantic relationship, all exacerbated further by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Transatlantic Exchange of Civic Educators (TECE) will bring together German and U.S.-American extracurricular civic learning professionals to unlock opportunities for mutual learning and reintroduce a transatlantic dimension to the field.
