The Venice Academy of Human Rights is an international and interdisciplinary programme of excellence for human rights education, research and debate. It provides an enriching forum for emerging ideas, practices...
It will be 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 of similar EUROCLIO events have signalled afterwards that they felt inspired and stimulated to share with colleagues and students what they learnt and contribute to follow-up events and online community building.
