"Gaining equilibrium? Building from the local to the global perspective" is the theme of Euro Clio (the annual European Standing Conference of History Teachers' Associations) in Riga, Latvia, April 11-17. In many European countries, history teaching's traditional focus on national topics has encouraged students' sense of patriotism. But changes, including the extension of the EU, have led to reassessment of the role of history teaching and how it helps prepare students to become responsible citizens.

Through lectures and workshops, this conference will explore the Latvian experience and ways of responding to different communities. Residential fee: pound;750-pound;1,000.
