GENERAL APPROACH AND FRAMEWORK

About 30 European workshops of a duration of 3-5 days are organised every year. The themes of these workshops are closely linked to priority concerns and projects of the Council of Europe in particular in the field of education. The European Workshops including the “Draft/Provsoire” mention will have some changes. Other European Workshops may be added to this list during the year.
