The second publication in the EEA-project: Edu-Action 2020-2021: «Nurturing Excellence» (Poland, Norway, Iceland) is now available. The monograph is called “Schoolchildren in Central and Northern Europe – on the need for transcultural education”
"To educate does not mean: to trample upon, to maltreat, to repress, to hurry. A child has the right to be who they are” wrote famous Polish educator Janusz Korczak. This thought, and the belief that transcultural education is the key to an harmonious development of a child – forms the background for this publication of nearly 300 pages which is dedicated to and recommended for educators working with children. Ewa Murawska, Ewa Baum,Jørn Schau and Mikolaj Rykowski have been members of the editorial team.
The release will form the basis for the project's second conference, which will be held in Iceland on March 23rd, and where Jørn Schau, Anne Randi Haugejorden, Robin Rolfhamre and Mariam Kharatyan will participate with presentations on behalf of UiA classical.
The Edu-Action 2020-2021 project is led by The Ignacy Jan Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznan, Poland (project manager Prof. Ewa Murawska) with UiA-classical as first partner (Norwegian project coordinator Prof. Jørn Schau). Furthermore, the University of Tromsø, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, University of the Arts, Menntaskóli and music in Iceland are partners in the project.
Beneficiary of the “Edu-Action 2020–2021” project is the The Ignacy Jan Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznań, which has received financial support from the EEA Norway Grant funds. The aim is to reduce economic and social differences within the EEA and to strengthen tripartite relationships between the partners in the area of education by carrying out their common initiatives.
