Discover the Center for Civil Education as a space of inspirations where interactive workshops participants, their coordinators, exhibition curators, scholars, artists and other people meet and get to know each other. The Center for Civil Education invites to attend interactive workshops, general or thematic guided tours, lectures, classes for schoolchildren and other events. Teachers with students, parents with children as well as groups of adults will find a type of visit that suits them best.

Interactive workshops are aimed at nurturing public spirit and encouraging a new outlook on social and political phenomena. They train observation, analysis, assessment, decision-making and teamwork skills. The workshops are designed by taking into consideration the material of exposition and visitor’s requests.

Guided tours are offered in English and Russian.

For students and teachers

Visit the Center for Civil Education with your class! The aim of interactive workshops is to help students find answers on the meaning of public spirit and the principles of the functioning of the state. We offer an interesting learning process and inspiring environment where each part of the exposition invites to think and act and relates to the topics studied at school.

The interactive workshops are free of charge and are designed for schoolchildren and students of grades 1-12 for groups of up to 30 persons. We kindly invite teachers and educators of kindergartens to visit the Center as well. Our educators will consult you and share useful information to plan a successful visit on your own.

Choose the most suitable type of visit:

1. Interactive workshop (for students of grades 1-12)
Available only in Lithuanian language

A Day with a President (for students of grades 1-4)

In an easy, involving and interesting way. Together with other participants to the educational activity, we will deepen our knowledge in one of the exposition spaces called “The Freedom to Decide and Act”. While carrying out playful tasks, pupils will remember the events of the Lithuanian history that are important for all and take a closer look at the work of Lithuania’s presidents. What do presidents do on working days and what is their leisure time like? For what merits can each of us be awarded by a president with a state order? Pupils will rely both on the information in the exposition and their personal experience to find answers to these questions.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

I am a Citizen (for students of grades 5-8)

From birth our rights and duties are defined by law and to solve the problems that we encounter we contact state institutions. State policy might both encourage and prevent us from taking a specific action. It is easy to put a finger on the relationship between us and the state we live in in everyday life. During the educational activity, pupils are invited to create life stories for different characters and find out what is the role of state in each of them. The activity raises questions that are relevant to the youth, provides the information pupils need and encourages independent decision-making.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Find out, understand and participate! (for students of grades 9-12)

Even though since antiquity people have been unsuccessfully looking for an unambiguous answer to the question “What is a state?”, today’s political scientists agree on the main attributes necessary to the existence of a state. People, territory, international recognition, laws, institutions and a budget – these are the crucial attributes of a state to be analysed by the participants to the educational activity. While exploring the interactive exposition, pupils will be able to gain insight into the topic that they choose, associate their newly acquired knowledge with today’s realities and present the topic to their friends.
Duration: up to 2 hours

2. Guided tour (for students of grades 9-12)
Available in Lithuanian, English and Russian languages

The Center for Civil Education offers an interactive exposition, which students can discover with a help of a guide and tablets. While listening to an interesting presentation and exploring exhibition on their own, students will get more knowledge about essential state characteristics.
Duration: up to 2 hours

3. Independent initiative
