Networking Panel 2

From Lifelong Learning to Education for Europe - Citizenship Education and Human Rights Education as an issue in the new multi-annual financial framework of the European Union

With European Commission communication of the EU 2020 Strategy as well as with communication of the new multi-annual financial framework (A Budget for Europe 2020, published end of June 2011), "Education Europe," a new major integrated education programme, will replace the existing structure of European programmes and offer various opportunities for EDC/HRE to develop and formulate a participatory European civil society perspective on the process of European integration and put a core focus mainly on mobility issues. The Europe for Citizens programme – so far the only existing programme directly involving citizens – will be further maintained as a small line in the Security and Union Citizenship section of the new budget. This panel aims at delivering information and discussing the future programmes from the perspective of non-formal EDC/HRE.

Richard Deiss, DG Education and Culture, European Commission (Belgium)

Moderation: Györgyi Toth, Active Citizenship Foundation (Hungary)

Key Lecture

Jean-Marc Ferry, University of Nantes (France): "L´UE comme système cosmopolitique"
