After serving on the Lifelong Learning Platform Steering Committee since 2010, and for three years in the capacity of Secretary-General, Joke van der Leeuw-Roord has completed this term with a high amount of dedication and commitment.

For EuroClio this volunteership has been instrumental at keeping in good check with the development of education policies in Brussels, with a special note to the efforts Joke has made, with the LLLPlatform colleagues at securing visibility and sustainability for education in the European agenda. Education policy shifts have been many over this turbulent period, the EuroClio Board, Staff and Community can only thank her for all the time and energy invested.

EuroClio Ambassador Mare Oja has successfully been voted into the Steering Committee of the Lifelong Learning Platform. At the LLLP General Assembly in Bratislava she was voted in. Given her experience and expertise in history education from both a practice as well as policy point of view, as well as her good contacts in Estonia and wider in Europe, EuroClio is confident she will be very well capable at representing EuroClio in this important European platform, as well as serve the needs of this platform, which represent all dimensions of lifelong learning. Certainly, history education has a role to play. We would like to thank Mare in advance for the time and energy she will invest in this volunteership.
