In our diverse European society we cannot escape history when seeking to understand the present in our search for a common future. EuroClio and the Evens Foundation have been working together for a few years now aiming to open up spaces to challenge dominant national narratives and to engage with the complexity, multiplicity and transnationality of European history and history teaching. We believe this is a necessary first step that allows and supports educators and their students to discover common positions or overcome divisions while acknowledging existing differences.
This is the first time that EuroClio has the unique opportunity to provide grants for member organisations. We believe that supporting transnational exchange and peer learning between history educators from the bottom-up, increases the probability that initiatives also answer educators’ real needs on the ground. We hope that EuroClio Regranting Scheme will contribute towards fostering more transnational cooperation between history educators.
