Europeana wants to make Europe's cultural and scientific wealth available, accessible and useable for everyone and encourages active engagement of Europe's cultural heritage resources. In 2014, EuroClio Founder and Special Advisor Joke van der Leeuw-Roord joined the Europeana Governance Structures. One of the results is this implemented strategy for a Network Association.
As Education is increasingly using the digital world as a learning environement, the Europeana digitized Collection is an important trans-border resource for education in general but certainly for history, heritage and citizenship education.
To make Europeana a truly democratic and representative network and to deliver the Europeana Strategy 2015-2020, it is important for education practitioners to join the Europeana Network Association in order to have a voice on Europeana’s policy on education and more.
The advantages to registering for the Network Association are multiple but here are some highlights:
