Next week: EUROCLIO’s 2nd Regional Summer School

Check out our final programme below!

Next week from 12 – 17 July 2016 EUROCLIO welcomes almost 50 participants to their 2nd Regional Summer School in Montenegro. This year’s theme is “History that Connects East and West: Learning through Entangled Legacies in History Education and Cultural Heritage“. The Summer School is meant to be a capacity-building event providing a transnational transfer of knowledge and experience. Through the programme organisations like the Regional Cooperation Council, Yad Vashem and History Teachers’ Associations all come together to share their views. We will also spend time outside of the conference room, on multiple On-Site Learning activities in Montenegro. We aim to make all participants feel inspired and stimulated to share with colleagues and students what they learnt.

New synergies. Kick-off meeting CDRSEE-EUROCLIO project in The Hague

On 18-19 February 2016, CDRSEE Director Zvezdana Kovac, Project advisor Antonis Hadjiyannakis and Programme advisor Corinna Noack-Aetopulos met with EUROCLIO Director Jonathan Even Zohar, Project manager Judith Geerling and Project assistant Romana Sijakovic to coordinate the implementation of the new project, supported by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), with funds of Austrian Development Cooperation.

The project ePACT – Education Partnership for Advocacy, Capacity-Building and Transformation will run until October 2018. CDRSEE and EUROCLIO with its member associations in the Western Balkan will engage in a wide research on the needs for education reform on innovative didactical approaches in general and history education in particular. Moreover, the project aims to set up two standing working groups, one on innovative didactics approaches and the other on history education, where policy makers, experts, civil society and educators will co-operate. The meeting was fruitful and inspiring for building further synergies. More information on the project will be available in the coming weeks.

The project will be implemented with the financial support of the Austrian Development Cooperation as part of the initiative “NETUCATE – Networked education creating a skills web for participation and sensitivity.”
