Roads to Democracy. How can History Education pave the Way? Euroclio annual conference 2015 in Denmark

The DARE network is proud to contribute to Euroclios 2015 annual conference!

What does Democracy mean today and what will it mean for those who are now attending schools? When we consider the impact of the near-collapse of Europe’s financial system in recent years, where do we start to teach for democracy? When we consider military interventions, how does Europe’s history reflect on this? When Democracy is more than ‘the vote’, what mindset should students across Europe and beyond develop. How could history contribute to this?

These and more questions on the environment of the history educator in 21st century will be the points to peer-learn on 6 full course days at a Unique International Conference.
