The global Covid-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the school system worldwide, affecting even harder students who are vulnerable to marginalisation or exclusion.
On June 22, from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm CET, the international webinar “Ensuring inclusive teaching and learning for educational recovery: practical ways forward”, co-hosted by UNESCO, the University of Manchester and UNESCO’s International Bureau of Education, will discuss on the teaching and learning improvements needed as schools reopen, through the analysis of promising innovation practices used in different parts of the world.
The COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis have accelerated the demand for more flexible and higher-level skills of individuals, which brought new challenges to the education sector and the labour market. At the same time, the need for a green and digital transition is increasingly becoming evident. The Bridge+ project has strongly worked in the field of future skills initiatives in order to promote a more dynamic and sustainable European digital future of education and career guidance. Among other realities, regional initiatives can play a key role in providing high quality solutions in the field of education, training and career guidance
For this reason, on June 9th, from 09:30 to 11: 30 CEST, the European Association of Regional and Local Authorities for Lifelong Learning (EARLALL) will host experts from the European level and from European regions in the webinar “Bridge + conference. Skills for the future: regional initiatives now!” to debate the current state of play of the European Adult Education Agenda and skills policies, as well as to explore innovative digital solutions to be adopted within both the education sector and the labour market.

Euroclio is launching a series of webinars on the concept of “decolonising history” to address this topic in a different way, reflecting and focusing on those aspects which are crucial also in understanding today’s history and in dealing with modern-day racism.
The first webinar, Decolonising Education: Voices from different fields, took place on May 15, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm. During this webinar, it will be analysed how decolonisation impacts on curriculum design, teacher education, and museum curation.
The second webinar, Decolonising History – Feed forward and exchange session, took place on May 18, from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. During this session, participants will have the opportunity to work both in groups and as a plenary, discussing the importance of Decolonising History and teachers’ contribution within the political sector. Furthermore, participants’ own experiences may be useful for the devising of future programmes.
The third webinar, Effective teaching approaches for history in primary school, will take place on May 28, from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm. The webinar will focus on the analysis of the aspects which have an impact on primary school children’s learning process, taking into account their historical awareness and abilities.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has affected the school system worldwide. Although technology has enabled to keep teaching and learning during this difficult time, some issues related to the lack of internet access or its difficult access, which especially affect disadvantaged families, seriously risk to compromise a student’s lifelong learning.
In this regard, on May 12, at 05:00 pm CEST, ISPI, the T20 National Coordinator and Chair, and Fundação Getulio Vargas are co-promoting the T20 Associated-event “The Future of Education after Covid. Leaving no one behind”, with the aim of discussing the future of education, focusing especially on finding solutions to also include the most vulnerable people.
