Our going-forward planning includes providing educators with a wide range of materials and resources with the intent to give students and teachers a comprehensive and interactive guide to the broad range of Constitutions around the globe and their related contemporary issues. Multiple reliable web resources provide teachers with a wide range of lesson plans and resource materials on the the breadth of international constitutions, civic engagement, democracy, government and historical context.
This site was designed to expand with the popularity of World Constitution Day and continues to connect readers to lively, interactive and welcoming civic and educational groups worldwide wishing to publicize and disseminate their own World Constitution Day materials, resources and event plans. This web site seeks to act as an international clearinghouse and a link to other web sites and organizations with similar missions. We've created a growing, supportive cyber-community to add to the interest and excitement in celebrating this World Constitution Day.
Conversations during World Constitution Day are to encourage civil discussion and debate about the meaning of some of a constitution's concepts and clauses that are the subject of current and ongoing constitutional debate. These conversations are organized around constitutional clauses or concepts that explore aspects of constitutional principles, interpretation and international law from both historical and contemporary perspectives. Topics include separation of powers, advice and consent of members of congress, establishment of religion, unreasonable searches and seizures, and much more.
World Constitution Day seeks to foster dialog which will create consensus solutions to difficult legal and constitutional issues. It aids this through constructive dialogue across international, ideological and partisan lines, and through scholarship, civic activism and public education efforts with a focus on celebration on a single day, once per year. You will be able to join these programs for free from your home computer, laptop, or any mobile device, or at other events located worldwide.
