Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage. Nonage is the inability to use one’s own understanding without another’s guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one’s own mind without another’s guidance. Sapere aude! “Have the courage to use your own understanding”, is therefore the motto of the enlightenment.

Immanuel Kant “Answering the Question: What Is Enlightenment?”

School of civic education invites you to the online-forum of civic dialog "Civic englightenment for civil society!"

The forum is designed to rejuvenate the spirit of global civics 1946— 1950 years, when after the destruction of the Second World War, citizens in Europe and around the world initiated the creation of important new international organizations, including the UN, the World Council of Churches, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights. A universal perception of justice emerged, reflected in key international documents such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Charter of the Council of Europe, and the European Convention on Human Rights.

In the following decade, this universal energy and civic spirit became embodied in the 1955 Russell-Einstein Manifesto, which laid the foundation in 1957 for the Pugwash movement; in the Non-Aligned Movement (1961) and to the formation in 1968 of the Club of Rome, wich also concerned with global problems; in the Helsinki Final Act at the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (1975), the signing of the Maastricht Treaty (1992) and the establishment of the Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights in 1999.

We're convinced that such a dialog is necessary for personal, civic, national and world development.

Our motto is: Sapere aude! "Have the courage to use your own understanding" - as declared Immanuel Kant, answering the Question: "What Is Enlightenment?”
