The Summer School seeks to promote the encounter of educators working in history and heritage through interactive workshops on innovative on-site learning. Participants follow an intensive and rich programme to which a wide range of local and international experts contribute.

The Summer School is a capacity-building event providing transnational transfer of knowledge and experience. We hope that through lectures, workshops, discussion groups and study visits, participating history and heritage educators will be stimulated to implement innovative teaching practices in their classroom and/or museum/site/institute and to work towards a framework for a common approach for dealing with history. Participants will improve their knowledge of cultures and get acquainted with new educational contents, services, and methods. participants will be able to take part in different formats of exchange and learning and attend lectures, workshops, and study visits to schools, relevant NGOs, memorial sites and museums.

Where and when does the Regional Summer School take place?

The summer school takes place in the central weeks of summer, often in August, each year in a different county. So far, we have been to: Šipovo (Bosnia-Herzegovina), Lovćen Mountain (Montenegro), Vlorë (Albania), and Metlika (Slovenia). Last year, the summer school was hosted in the beautiful city of Osijek, Croatia, from 22 to 24 August 2019.
