Across Europe, declining engagement in traditional democratic processes causes concern to governments, companies and other organisations, which are seen as increasingly remote from their stakeholders. A common response is to devolve decision-making in various ways. This requires active engagement by organisations and citizens at lower levels. Both organisations and individuals are called on to learn. This publication contains the final report of the project "Education & Training for Governance & Active Citizenship in Europe: Analysis of Adult Learning & Design of Formal, Non-Formal & Informal Educational Intervention Strategies". The ETGACE project explored the nature of citizenship and governance, how people learned to be active citizens, and the nature and effectiveness of lifelong education interventions for citizenship, in six contrasting European countries.
