About 2/2: … The work done by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung/bpb) centres on promoting awareness for democracy and participation in politics.

It takes up topical and historical subjects by issuing publications, by organising seminars, events, study trips, exhibitions and competitions, by providing extension training for journalists and by offering films and on-line products. The broad range of educational activities provided by the bpb is designed to motivate people and enable them to give critical thought to political and social issues and play an active part in political life. Considering Germany’s experience with various forms of dictatorial rule throughout its history, the Federal Republic of Germany bears a unique responsibility for firmly anchoring values such as democracy, pluralism and tolerance in people’s minds.

Its main task lies in fulfilling its own social-political, educational and journalistic responsibilities. It is independent of party politics and academically balanced. As a facility belonging to the state educational system it also promotes events at more than 300 recognised educational institutions, foundations and non-governmental organisations which are active in the Federal Republic of Germany in civic education.
