The National Commission for Civic Education has begun its Annual Citizenship Week Education for the year 2021.

The flagship programme by the Commission, "Citizenship Week", targets young citizens in basic schools and it's observed nationwide. The NCCE together with resource persons visits schools to interact with pupils on their civic rights and responsibilities. Citizenship Week is a platform to actively engage young citizens to inculcate in them the spirit of oneness, Ghanaian values, and patriotism. The Commission also uses the platform to educate pupils on their civic duties and responsibilities. This year the Commission is engaging the pupils on the theme, "We Are One, Ghana First." With the help of the Ghana Education Service and the Ministry of Education, the NCCE has been granted access to five thousand (5000) basic schools nationwide to roll out this year's Citizenship Week Engagements at the national, regional, and district levels. The number of schools has dropped from 10,000 to 5000 because of COVID-19 restrictions. Citizenship Week programme was instituted in 2012 and since then the NCCE has been reaching out to schools as part of its Civic Education mandate. The education started on 26th, May 2021 and ends on 9th June 2021.

Civic Education is a shared responsibility.
