Erasmus + Strategic Partnership EDIC+

Each university has developed an EDIC+module in the area of its own expertise on moral and citizenship education. These modules are available for Master- and PhD-students specialising in the field of education. Each university will organise a national seminar to disseminate the program in May 2019. A final conference will be held in Utrecht on June 19-20, 2019.

Education plays a central role in preparing youngsters for a democratic society, for active participation and greater social justice and tolerance in all domains of society. Given this important task for education, it is necessary to train a new generation of educational professionals that can contribute to this development.

EDIC+ is a collaboration of the University of Barcelona, Bath-Spa University, the University of Helsinki, Charles University Prague, the University of Tallinn, Aristotle University Thessaloniki and the University of Humanistic Studies Utrecht.
