The Education and Culture Committee works to strengthen European cultural and social values. In June 2015, the Committee adopted its Action Plan 2015 – 2017. Towards this goal, the Committee’s work will focus on the following four themes:
– Teachers interacting with the social and cultural environment
What is the role of the teacher in the 21st century? What support can be given to teachers, head teachers, local councilors, political authorities, and members of NGOs?
– Effective use of digital media within educational practice
What is the impact of media digitalisation on educational practices in Europe, on « living together », on intercultural dialogue, on the history of Europe, and on education in general? What role can education play in digital media ?
– The teaching of history
What is the role of history in education? What is the role of history in the construction of European citizenship?
– The teaching of intercultural dialogue – Living together in Europe
What are appropriate practices in intercultural education? How can teachers foster the development of an inclusive society, that is, adapt their instruction to accommodate cultural differences to ensure equal opportunity?
