Citizens' education includes “for” and “through” ways of learning and is about equipping students with the basic tools to become capable citizens of a democratic society. These tools include knowledge and knowing, skills and abilities, values, and affection for something. All these tools are needed for the active participation of the young man in the role of a capable and responsible citizen of a democratic state. Of course, to achieve this, the quality of education and the approach that would enable that process, the process towards creating a better society, with more prepared generations and more competent individuals, is of the utmost importance. Also, besides school, the role of parents as well as the local community is important. Together, these entities have a direct or indirect impact on the education process and, therefore, should make every effort to invest in the development of civic skills among young people. There is a large number of civic skills that are available, but also crucial in terms of raising young people as future citizens of a democratic society. Specifically in this paper we will pay attention to: the cooperation, managing and resolving conflicts, participation, critical thinking, creative thinking, reflection and patient.
