EuroClio – Inspiring History and Citizenship Educators, AEPHG – History Teachers Association of Spain and Basque School Network – Ikastolen Elkartea are proud to announce exciting new features and welcome you to register to our Annual Conference & professional development and training course in Donostia-San Sebastian!

The conference will address the key question “How can history change today” in the context of our dynamic and challenging world. Looking trough the theme Local vs. Global it wishes to go beyond the most evident communities of all, the nation, and explore the role of history in the shaping of local and global communities and identities. Another theme, Past vs. Present will be discussed in the relation to history education and current affairs. With the ongoing series of crises, embedded in global developments, what is the role and responsibility of history, heritage and citizenship educators in bridging all these complex current affairs with history?

Specific topics feeding into workshops and dialogues will include European cooperation in historical context and independence in an interdependent world. The conference will entail a key note speech by a prominent historian, panel discussions, dialogue tables, workshops, on-site visits, visit to schools and many more.
