We are delighted to announce our participation as project partners in the upcoming initiative ‘RETHINK-Remembrance Education for Thinking Critically’, due to start in January 2018. The EU-wide initiative, funded under the Erasmus + programme will be coordinated by CIEP (Centre International D’Etudes Peadagogiques) in Paris and the project consortium comprises prestigious academic and education organisations across the EU. The work of the project will focus on creating and sharing best practice about how education on remembrance is conducted (with a particular focus on the Holocaust) and how educators can counteract the manipulation of memorialisation for nationalistic purposes. The CDRSEE brings its considerable expertise in the area of history education to be applied more specifically to remembrance and we look forward to contributing to the body of knowledge in this exciting, and vital, area of work.
The kick-off meeting of all the partner organizations will take place in Paris on January 29-30.
