Celebrating the real work of development education
and awareness raising
Four of the EDUGLOCAL partners also attended the DEEEP Final Conference, a very important international event which took place in Brussels, 28th & 29th October 2015. The event had participation from the European DEAR community: practitioners (in particular current and former DARE Forum members), academics, policy makers, DEEEP and DARE Forum partners and stakeholders not only from Europe but, also, the rest of the world (total of 100 participants).
Our EDUGLOCAL project was represented by:
Elena Frascaroli and Roberta Morosillo (Progettomondo Mlal – Italy), Roberto Rodriguez – Pindado (County Council of Avila – Spain) and Varvara Chatzoglou (The Regional Directorate of Primary and Secondary Education in the North Aegean -Greece).
The schedule followed was:
28th October, 19.30: registration and welcome dinner with a keynote speech from Nomvula Dlamini (CDRA, South Africa) – Cercle des Voyageurs
29th October, 8.30 to 18.00: un-conference ‘The Best of Global Learning’ – De Markten
Our aim was to disseminate the EDUGLOCAL project and enrich it with new ideas and methods coming from other participants, but also learn from them.
Variety and exchange of ideas and good practices always give added value to education, culture and activism and we feel that such events are a necessity if we wish to accomplish a common future with equal opportunities and the sharing of the best possible new ideas and methodological approaches.
On behalf of the EDUGLOCAL team, we would like to congratulate the hosts, as well as ALL the participants, for this global action which brought together so many interesting stakeholders from so many beautiful countries and educational systems!
