The module series the Diversity of world views and world knowledge started in 2010. It was the eighth series of the trainer training scheme of the Pestalozzi Programme and was planned to last until spring/summer 2011. The first module (Module A) took place in Strasbourg at the European Youth Centre of the Council of Europe and the second module (Module B) in Graz, Austria with the support of the Austrian Ministry of Education. The five phases of the module series were coordinated by a team of facilitators – Mr Liutauras Degesys, Lithuania, Ms Susana Gonçalves, Portugal - led by Mr Angelos Vallianatos, Greece. The coordination of the methodological approach was carried out by the General Rapporteur, Ms Pascale Mompoint-Gaillard in close collaboration with the Secretariat. The training units, edited by Ms Olga Ferreira with the support of Ms Cyrielle Poiraud, are now available for interested teachers and teacher trainers to try them out, to adapt them and further develop them. The Pestalozzi Programme would appreciate feedback on the available resources, including further resources developed on the basis of the model in its online collection.
