The Secretariat of Education of Bogotá has established education for citizenship and coexistence as one of the main topics of the Educative Sector Plan. The purpose is to strengthen the participatory, democratic and convivial processes that are developed at public schools. Therefore, the Secretariat of Education of Bogotá has created the Education for Citizenship and Civic Coexistence project. This document gathers the theoretical framework of citizenship and civic coexistence, orientated to the creation of curricula, learning communities and participatory spaces related to the development of civic capabilities that lead to a balance between academic knowledge and citizenship knowledge. It is mainly aimed for school managers, teachers and people interested in knowing the bases and orientations the project has, in order to be implemented at schools.
