History of the future

October 2016

The most exciting moment for us at the CDRSEE has arrived  -  the printing of the two new JHP workbooks is underway! Moreover, on November 15th , the workbooks – a rare example of a history book that deals with such a recent past - will be presented to the European Parliament at an event hosted by Ms Ulrike Lunacek, European Parliament Vice-President, and four other MEPs: Ms. Tanja Fajon, Mr. Eduard Kukan, Mr. Knut Fleckenstein and Mr. Ivan Jakovcic.

The event is entitled ‘History of the Future’, referring to the way in which  history should be taught in the future, and which reflects our belief that education, and history education, in particular, affects and shapes our future.
