On 25 November Dr. Christian Pletzing, director of the Akademiezentrum Sankelmark just ouside Flensburg, joined the course "Europe as Education Space" to talk about the work of the European Academy Schleswig-Holstein. The academy brings people together to discuss European topics and history from different perspectives, e.g. in international summer schools and workshops on minority issues. They also offer internshipsJ!
On Wednesday, 18 November, Julie Ward, a former member of the European Parliament for the North West of England, joined the class "Europa as Education Space". She gave some interesting insights into the work of the European Parliament and its committees, talked about the benefits that the ErasmusPlus programme holds for e.g. marginalized groups and her mission to have the importance of the arts recognized across Europe, e.g. by turning STEM (science, technology, engineering&mathematics) into STEAM. Very inspiring!
