Education Councils and the European Education Area

After a welcome by CIEP, Cnesco and EUNEC, the European Commission presented its 'European Education Area' package. Maarten Simons, KU Leuven Belgium, reflected on 'the learning of Europe'. The afternoon sessions zoomed in on specific action lines within the package, and on how countries deal with it.
On the second day, participants had the occasion to follow some language classes at the Collège de Sèvres.
On the last afternoon, Education Councils zoomed out and reflected on the relation between international governance in the field of education and training, and the role of education councils. This session was introduced by Roos Herpelinck, explaining how the Flemish Education Council takes up this role.
