SIG 3 Meeting in York, UK

DARE's Special Interest Group 3 "Action and Research" aims at bridging the gap between research and practitioners in Education for Democratic Citizenship (EDC) and Human Rights Education (HRE).

On its second working group meeting in York, UK (Sept 12-14), participants from 6 European countries discussed approaches to better teach issues like the EU and globalization in adult education. Some results and best practices will be presented at the DARE conference in Vienna (Nov. 14-16).

Furthermore the group suggested that sustainability issues are integrated into DARE's work. SIG 3 will prepare suggestions for the coming DARE General Assembly in order to raise awareness for issues like sustainable transportation, consumption, event management etc.
