Overview

Project Overview

In this project funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and led by the partnership team of the Department of Education, University of York and the National Foundation for Educational Research we:

  1. Identified activities for community cohesion that are managed by schools and explore to what extent these initiatives are perceived by students to contribute to their understanding and practice;
  2. Ascertained how students characterize community cohesion and what range of community (both virtual and actual) activities they are engaged in within and beyond school
  3. Produced exemplar resources for new approaches to learning (for policy makers, academics, professionals and young people).

Please see the Publications tab (above) for academic publications.

Further details about the book 'Creating Citizenship Communities: education, young people and role of schools' (published in July 2014) may be found in our flyer: Creating Citizenship Communities (PDF , 110kb)
