The 2nd Annual Conference of the Observatory of History Teaching in Europe is taking place in Strasbourg on 1-2 December 2022.
History teaching has been an important area of interest of the Council of Europe for almost 70 years. Throughout the conferences, symposia, workshops and publications issued as a result of the close co-operation with education authorities, academia, teachers and civil society stakeholders, one belief is ever present: there can be no democracy without critical thinking, and critical understanding of the past is a major part of it.
The Observatory on History Teaching in Europe (OHTE) organises its 2nd Annual Conference with the aim to question what “A Future without History Teaching” would look like. The Conference also aims to present the findings of the first OHTE Thematic Report on “Pandemics and Natural Disasters as Reflected in History Teaching”, the initial thoughts on the General Report on the state of history teaching in Europe and spark debates around the topics raised.
