"Focus of the conference
The conference will highlight the importance of education for the preparation of a life as a democratic citizen in diverse democratic societies and of education for the development of one¬ís full personality. It will focus in particular on the implications this has for the image and ethos of the teaching profession, the competences of teachers and their day-to-day practices and on the beliefs teachers, parents and the public in general may have regarding what education - good education - is and which outcomes it ought to produce.
The conference will also discuss a Manifesto for Teachers of the 21st century which is intended as a declaration of views, motives and intentions pointing towards the necessity of a fundamental change of mind-sets and beliefs about education. This manifesto shall serve as inspiration, orientation and guidance for teachers but also for all those concerned by education: children, parents, teachers, schools, (local) authorities and society as a whole.
Last but not least, the conference will explore what future actions can be envisaged to support this change of mind-sets, of policies and practices in cooperation and partnership with all stakeholders. This also includes the question of how education systems can be/should be designed so that they encourage the development of transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge necessary for the future of our democratic society such as critical thinking, creativity, cooperation, etc.?"
