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.
