Abstract(englisch):
More and more people feel that they cannot leave their lives to be governed bydemocratic institutions alone. They want to take charge themselves, be involved and havea say in their community - in short, live their lives as active citizens. Citizenship, however, is not a given. Like most things, it needs to be learned, and citizenshipeducation aims to facilitate just that. For students, citizenship education means more than merely learning about citizenship and democracy. Citizenship education means learning through practicing citizenshipinside and outside the school. One model for that is service learning, first conceived inNorth America but now also taking root in other parts of the world. Service learningcombines service and learning by linking community service and reflection about it inclass. The present volume grounds citizenship education theoretically, presents empiricalresearch about its long-term effects and gives examples of how it works in practice.
