In this paper, authors from POLITIKA, the Radix Youth Wing, recommend seven steps to reform Citizenship Education:


  • Make a core political education course compulsory for all young people to remove barriers to engagement


  • Reduce inequalities in education to improve political representation


  • Improve political intelligence through discussion-based learning


  • Place an emphasis on active learning and social participation to foster true understanding


  • Teach all young people key information literacy skills so they can make sense of the world around them



  • Ensure that all young people have the basic economic knowledge required to access politics


  • Create a learning environment where young people can develop an understanding of how the world fits together
