TEACHING THE NEXT GENERATION OF RESPONSIBLE CITIZEN
Civics Academy is free online tool of videos and podcasts that teaches the youth of South Africa what their civil rights and responsibilities are. Echo Ledge Media in partnership with The Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Hans Siedler Foundation have been working to build a large body of information that can guide students and educators in thinking about their civic rights and responsibilities.
A civic education is a prerequisite for a well functioning democracy. It is imperative that new generations have a thorough understanding of the democratic system and an appreciation of the values that are meant to govern our society.
The videos have been used in schools, workshops and online for the last 4 years and have been seen by thousands of young people.
