The fourth and final meeting of the European Commission’s Education and Training (ET 2020) Working Group on Promoting Common Values and Inclusive Education took place online on 18 November.
The Agency has been a part of the working group since its creation in 2018. The group discusses policy issues surrounding the Paris Declaration of 2015 on ‘Promoting citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education’ and the Council Recommendation of 22 May 2018.
Around 45 representatives from organisations and governments across Europe took part in the final meeting. The meeting aimed to present updates following the proposal for achieving a European Education Area by 2025, and the main outcomes of recent working group activities. These include discussions around four thematic areas:
- Uses and abuses of modern media
- Building bridges through history education
- Integration of young migrants and refugees
- LGBTI inclusion.
The meeting also explored the potential role of inclusive education in future working groups.
