EUROCLIO - European Association of History Educators supports the development of responsible and innovative history, citizenship and heritage education by promoting critical thinking, multi-perspectivity, mutual respect, and the inclusion of controversial issues. The Association advocates a sound use of history and heritage education towards the building and deepening of democratic societies, connecting professionals across boundaries of communities, countries, ethnicities and religions. It seeks to enhance the quality of history and citizenship education through capacity building for educators and producing and implementing innovative teaching tools.
Since 1993 many independent new organizations, associations and institutes of history educators emerged across Europe and joined EUROCLIO. Right now, EUROCLIO membership covers 75 history educators’ organizations, associations and institutes from more than 40 countries.
EUROCLIO welcomes membership of organizations, associations and institutes dealing with history, heritage and citizenship education inside and beyond Europe. EUROCLIO offers a series of opportunities to its member organizations and associations aiming to influence education reform processes, collaborate with larger cross-border networks, participate in professional development training and steer the member organization or association through democratic participation. The professional EUROCLIO secretariat provides support to its members in a variety of fields as networking, capacity building, preparation and planning of activities and other related actions.
