DEALING WITH CONTROVERSY THOUGH EDUCATION: A REGIONAL APPROACH

Utøya

The European Wergeland Centre (EWC)(Norway) together with the Education Development Centre (Lithuania), the National Centre for Education (Latvia) and the Finnish National Agency for Education (Finland) invites representatives of institutions, active in formal and non-formal education, from Nordic and Baltic States to submit applications to take part in the Training for Trainers course “Dealing with controversy through education: a regional approach”. The training course is conducted in the frames of the NORDPLUS1 horizontal project which aims to support institutions and education professionals in formal and non-formal education to: - create inclusive and democratic spaces where young people can explore issues that concern them freely and without fear; - make use of teaching strategies and techniques that promote open and respectful dialogue, critical thinking and respect for differences.
