eTwinning Conference in Florence

The Conference draws inspiration from the “Declaration on Promoting citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education”, adopted by the EU Ministers of Education in Paris, on March 17, 2015.  
Since then more violence has taken place in Europe and it is even more urgent to discuss how education can contribute to personal development, ensuring inclusive education for all children and young people.
eTwinning is the main collaboration platform for schools in Europe and through the projects carried out by teachers and pupils of every country is a living proof that the cultural differences become an element of discovery and personal enrichment for pupils. eTwinning projects, as widely demonstrated by teachers’ testimonies, can make any pupil feel at home, irrespective of his/her ability and provenance. eTwinning teaches young people to value the good things that the past, the present and the future can give us and present them with problems that affect modern society working on possible solutions – the common European cultural heritage.
This thematic conference will concentrate on how to empower teachers to promote the values of democracy, tolerance and respect for diversity through their work in eTwinning, and will present what eTwinning has done already over the past eleven years.
