One of the aims of policy-makers in all European countries is to strengthen social cohesion and solidarity throughout society. This requires basic agreement on what is meant by acting as a ‘responsible citizen’. Therefore, all countries have to define their own ‘national’ concept of ‘responsible citizenship’. Yet defining ‘citizenship’ itself is by no means straightforward. Its meaning and the way it is perceived differ from one country to the next, and some national languages do not even have a directly equivalent term.Education plays an important role in fostering active and responsible citizenship. Besides parents, the wider family, friends and the local community, schools are the main setting for socialisation. One of their aims has always been to prepare young people for life in the adult world. It is thus important that they should provide pupils with the basic skills and knowledge that will help them to make a worthwhile contribution to society and its positive development.
