The international initiative is aimed at educators and youth workers.
ENRS has the pleasure to be one of the partners of the programme "Venues of victims // Venues of perpetrators. Mapping, decoding & processing the role of historical - civic education in (European) Youth Work".
The goal of the project is to address the challenges of educational work within the democratic citizenship and human rights framework; to enable exchange of experiences between educators from different European countries and explore possibilities for future development. This is being achieved by creating opportuinities for youth workers and educators to further raise their skills and widen their perspectives via series of international meetings held in different parts of Europe. By doing so, organisers also hope to establish a sustainable cooperation structure between different institutions of historical and political /civic education (places of remembrance, research institutions, educational establishments and other institutions of youth education).
After a kick-off seminar in Weimar, Germany in April, and a training course in Poznan, Poland in May, the upcoming events within the project include:
- Advanced Planning Visit, Zagreb, Croatia (01–03 July 2018)
- Summer Camp, Croatia (different venues, 18-31 August 2018)
- Final Conference, Gernika, Spain (5–9 November 2018)
