CREATIVE LEARNING AND ACTION FOR A JUST AND SUSTAINABLE WORLD

Global Link coordinating new European peace heritage project

23/10/2018

We are excited to announce the start of our ground-breaking European project,Learning from the Past (so that we are not condemned to repeat it).

 

LFTP: Learning from the Past, funded by the EU Erasmus+ KA2 programme, is a development of Global Link’s heritage project, ‘World War I: Sowing the Seeds of Global Citizenship’.

 

Adult research volunteers from seven European countries will use oral histories, local archives, libraries and museums to research local history relating to peace and internationalism in the years following World War I. They will document this learning through an online interactive map on Global Link’s Documenting Dissent website. The volunteers will then share these little-known histories with young people in their country and invite them to create films, theatre and visual art in response to this learning, linking it with contemporary issues of conflict and peace in Europe today.

 

In this time of increasing racism and challenge to the European values of internationalism, human rights and peace, understanding the past is important so that something like the Holocaust never happens again.
