The Civics and Citizenship Education website contains resources, information, activities and links for teachers, students and parents involved in civics and citizenship education.

Civics and citizenship education promotes students' participation in Australia's democracy by equipping them with the knowledge, skills, values and dispositions of active and informed citizenship. It entails knowledge and understanding of Australia's democratic heritage and traditions, its political and legal institutions and the shared values of freedom, tolerance, respect, responsibility and inclusion.

This website is sponsored by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, and maintained by Education Services Australia.
