History Education and the Council of Europe


The Council of Europe's work on history education is founded on the assumption that understanding the past is essential for building a shared future, for fostering European democracies and for strengthening active democratic citizenship. Our vision and motto is: Teaching History, Grounding Democracy. History teaching that is based on multiperspectivity, historical thinking and on the values of the Organisation can enhance students’ critical thinking skills, democratic competences and empathy – all of which are essential for generations of young citizens that value democracy.
