Celebration activities planned:
- International Conference The Primary Colours of Education I 13th & 14th April 2016 I Cavtat, Croatia.
NEPC believes that a holistic approach is crucial for quality education. The quality of an education system is reflected in the values and knowledge it provides, achievable only if it is good for all and if it enhances the personal development of future generations of global citizens.
Education systems are constantly placed in a central role for achieving societal changes, thus increasingly overwhelming education with expectations to be the force of change. Although education cannot change societies alone, it has an important role to play. Current trends in education show the tendency of fragmented approaches to support or oppose certain social movements and social phenomena. The practices of focusing education on individual social issues and agendas cause the lack of comprehensive understanding of its primary functions.
Covering a wide range of topics, the aims of the conference are:
* to present current phenomena and challenges in education
* to help identify the characteristics of quality education in all its aspects
* to outline the primary functions of education today
The publication presents the views of the Network people – members, experts, partners, employees – about its achievements outlining its main features!
