It is with pride that we announce the successful completion of our final EDUGLOCAL Conference which took place in Brussels on 28th October 2015, together with our partners meeting.

Our Partnership would like to thank the EACEA for giving us the opportunity to implement this project which became a chance for all of us to deal with important issues through the eyes of teachers and students, develop meaningful material and test it, work with beautiful people (authorities, teachers, students, parents, volunteers and other stakeholders), but, also, to participate more actively in our local communities – which was a life-learning experience for everyone. Also, we express our gratitude to the authorities of the Region of Emilia-Romagna for providing us with the venue for this conference and for their wonderful hospitality. Finally, our thanks to our kind guests who really honoured us with their presence during this event.

Closing this post, we would like to thank -once more- our true protagonists, i.e. the students, the school headmasters/headmistresses, the teachers, the CSOs (NGOs, organisations, associations, volunteers) and all other stakeholders (authorities, museums, etc) in Italy, Spain, Sweden, Greece, Romania, who helped us implement the EDUGLOCAL project and have made the last 2 years much more interesting and challenging for us!
