Conference of Ministers of Education: response to pandemic crisis

The Conference of Ministers of Education of the Council of Europe, organised in the framework of the Greek Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, has endorsed a Political Declaration on the education response to COVID-19. The Declaration is accompanied by a Roadmap for Action on the Council of Europe education response to COVID-19, which shows how the Organisation will adapt its Education programme to assist member states in making the right to education a reality in times of COVID-19.

Ministers also considered the role of education in protecting cultural heritage in view of climate change and were updated on progress in the setting up of an Observatory on History Teaching, which was launched at a Ministerial Conference held in Paris under the French Presidency of the Committee of Ministers in November 2019, with an address by Jean-Michel Blanquer, Minister of National Education of France.
