"Democracy is like a muscle that needs to be exercised." This is the guiding principle behind the new "Democracy Gym" teaching material. It bundles eleven media-based methods for educational practice in schools and extracurricular youth education. "Democracy Gym" consists of two modular training plans with complementary warm-up and cool-down exercises. They support professionals in getting young people excited about our democracy with creativity and wit within the realities of their lives. Democracy Gym" was developed jointly by medien+bildung.com and klicksafe. The ceremonial release takes place today at Hambacher Schloss in Neustadt an der Weinstraße. Hambach Castle is considered the "cradle of German democracy." For more information on this event, please see the press release from the Media Authority of Rhineland-Palatinate.
