Innovating History Education

21 March 2012

The EU funded “Sharing History, Cultural Dialogues” project held its first round-table on 20 March in Yerevan to discuss history education in the Black Sea Region.
The project, which involves partner associations from Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Azerbaijan), aims to promote mutual understanding, tolerance, strengthen the capacities of educators, raise public awareness, create adequate conditions for the development of educational activities and, finally, to strengthen regional links and dialogue within the region of the Eastern Partnership and between EU countries.
The target group includes teachers, trainers, professors, curriculum developers and textbook authors. The Project Coordinator, Steven Stegers, announced that 30 educational modules would soon be developed to promote the core ideas of the project, but it was important to know what beneficiarieswould liketo receive from this project; and,once it were clear, to create a detailed action plan for Armenia.
The project is supported by European Union’s Eastern Partnership Culture programme for a duration of 3 years (December 2011-November 2014). It is implemented by EUROCLIO with financial assistance from the European Union. This is one of 15 ongoing regional projects with a total overall budget of €8,200,000.
