22nd EUROCLIO training course: “Roads to Democracy. How can History Education pave the Way?”

History, Heritage and Citizenship Educators across Europe and beyond are invited to apply to participate in the 22nd EUROCLIO (www.euroclio.eu) Annual Conference Professional Development and Training Course namely “Roads to Democracy. How can History Education pave the Way?” between 20-25 April 2015. The conference will take place in Elsinore (Denmark), European city standing on age of global history for which history and heritage became concrete drive for development.

The conference will focus on roles and conducting of Democracy in History Education. As seen in the history of civic engagement through education in Denmark, as well as the turbulent recent developments in Europe and its immediate neighbourhood, education, notably history education is a crucial element here, not just for Democracy as a final stage, but as a process of emancipation and progress.

How can History Teachers pave this way? The conference aims to explore this question through a highly active and condensed programme which will engage the participant in an interactive programme with workshops, dialogue tables, open spaces, on-site study visits, public debate and reflective and interactive panels. The conference will provide a platform of intercultural exchange in which the participants will actively learn, share best practices, and network. The core group of teachers and heritage educators will be involved in manifold activities that will empower them to engage their students and other target groups with critical debate from multiple perspectives promote pluralism, and combat the idea that history is a single, unchangeable truth.
