100 years since the start of World War I. What can we learn from the past? And how do we want to shape our European future?
EAEA (European Association for the Education of Adults) and DVV International (Institute of International Cooperation of the German Adult Education Association) have launched the initiative Remembering for the Future which collects World War I related projects organized by Adult Education providers all over Europe in order to create dialogue, research and discussion.
Remembering for the Future focusses on local history during WWI, as well as on reflections on the current and future situation in Europe. The activities may include local study groups, workshops or lectures, conferences, online resources and movies, podcasts and other media projects. In addition to or instead of these activities, each participating organisation can create their own unique activities.
All projects have the opportunity to participate in the Grundtvig Award 2014, which will be presented in November 2014 in Sarajevo. The Grundtvig Award, given by EAEA, honours innovation and excellence in adult education. In 2014 the Award will be assigned to an adult education project that focuses on the topics of World War I remembrance, peace and conflict resolution. The deadline for application is September 7, 2014.
