European Association of History Educators
Bring together hundreds of historians and history educators to share experiences, to implement innovative learning about the past, discussing also sensitive and controversial issues, and therefore creating new and inclusive historical narratives.
EUROCLIO, the European Association of History Educators, was established in 1992 on request of the Council of Europe to build bridges between history education professionals from all parts of the then recently reunited Europe. EUROCLIO started as an umbrella organisation gathering 14 Associations from 14 predominantly Western countries and grew to become a far-reaching network of 44 member Associations and 15 associated members from 52 countries 20 years later.
- International Training
EUROCLIO offers international training opportunities in the field of history, heritage and citizenship education, intercultural and interreligious dialogues. EUROCLIO also organises an annual conference including workshops. The conference aims to explore specific questions through a highly (inter)active and engaging programme with workshops, dialogue tables, open spaces, on-site study visits, public debate and reflective and interactive panels. The conference provides a platform of intercultural exchange in which the participants actively learn, share best practices and network.
- Learning to Disagree
In our world today young people are increasingly influenced by social media and the information found on the internet. This exposes young people to different extremist ideologies and alternative facts. Teachers are often confronted with radical views and expected to deal with them. This project aims to aid educators in how to constructively discuss and debate these issues by exploring different aspects of an issue. The competences that students have learned through meaningful dialogue and debate at school will also enable these students to deal constructively with tensions and disagreement in their daily life. The project aims to empower educators across Europe to enable students to acquire social and civic competences through debates, dialogue and discussion on contested issues as part of their formal education
