Within the framework of the project UPPER an international workshop on the issue “Education inspiring peace, from fragments and silos to a systemic approach” will be organised in Sanremo on 23 November 2018 by the Institute, under the auspices of the Municipality of Sanremo and in collaboration with the Fondation des Régions Européennes pour la Recherche, l’Éducation et la Formation (FREREF) which includes the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE), the Ministry of Education and Employment of Malta (MEDE), the European School Heads Association (ESHA) , partners of the UPPER project.
The initiative aims to gather together policy makers at different institutional levels, schools, local communities, representatives from civil society and cultural institutions committed to enhancing the positive role of education in creating conditions for peace and respect for cultural differences.
The workshop will present a synopsis of the good practices identified by the UPPER partners and will introduce the concept of “international collaborative benchmarking”. It will also propose the activity plan of the “Peace Education Laboratory” to be established in Sanremo as a project spin-off, and will discuss strategies for capacity building and international networking to maximize the impact of existing initiatives.
Working language will be English.
