Barcelona Debate 2002 - Europa com a assignatura

Lecture series

What can be done to ensure that Europeans know about the history and culture of their continent? How should Europe be taught in schools? What is the shared cultural history of all Europeans, and what makes us different? If we are to share institutions, currency and sovereignty, it seems only reasonable to know how others speak, work, desire and create. It is in this spirit that the CCCB, with the collaboration of Fundació Collserola, is organizing a cycle of lectures with a view to launching a debate about Europe and education.
