EWC activities and services are free and open for all 47 member states of the Council of Europe.
Together with our partners we respond to actual needs in education, creating sustainable impact for a democratic culture. We believe that education can provide the skills people need to live peacefully in diverse societies and be active democratic citizens.
The Teacher Training Centre Bucharest established a training programme for teachers called Democratic Education in Romanian Schools, following their participation in the EWC training programme Building Democratic School Cultures. “The most important benefit so far is that teachers started to think about how to involve parents and students into discussions about school life, directors started to change their management style towards a more participative and less authoritarian approach”, Gabriela Bărbulescu, teacher trainer, said
The regional cooperation component of the Schools for Democracy programme aims to share experiences on how to develop competences for democratic culture (CDC) in schools, between educators from Ukraine and other countries in the region.
On November 11-12 EWC welcomed a delegation led by Ukraine’s Minister of Education and Science, Hanna Novosad. The purpose of the visit was to get familiar with the Norwegian pre-school system, as Ukraine is planning to develop a new strategy for this sector.
