Welcome to EUDEC 2018

Every year

For the past 10 years, hundreds of students, teachers, parents and "experts" in the field of education have been gathering at the Pan-European Conference on Democratic Education, and as equals we are looking for ways to improve the quality of learning and school life in general. In an atmosphere of warmth and openness, everyone can bring what they have and want to share. This can be an experiential workshop in Non-Violent Communication, a discussion in a circle entitled "Learning from our mistakes", a panel of speakers on "What does Democracy mean?", A huge game of hide and seek… Come and laugh , to sing, to philosophize, to wonder, to ponder, to be inspired, to change and to create together.

Let's live together in a temporary democratic community, children and adults to ask about the education we want, and to exchange useful practices with people who have years of experience in free and democratic educational settings. With the power of solidarity:

"The most beautiful world, which our heart knows, it is possible"

Charles Eisenstein *»Die schönere Welt, die unser Herz kennt, ist möglich»

This year

This year's conference of the European Community for Democratic Education will take place in the hospitable village of Korfes in Crete on August 1-7! The community's speeches, workshops, games and cordial discussions will be framed by a traditional Greek setting of rare natural beauty.

On the last day we intend to visit the beach of Karteros together.

EUDEC 2018 Program

You can see the conference schedule by clicking on the following link: Program EUDEC 2018 Along with the keynote speeches, the biggest and liveliest part of the conference is his workshops, discussions and games. of the OPEN PROGRAM These can occur spontaneously on the spot or be pre-organized. All participants can offer and / or request workshops / activities. So, every day there will be many events running in parallel for which you will be able to be informed by the big billboards that will be in the conference space. The Open Program will be completed with the further offers of the participants every day throughout the Conference. These additions will appear ONLY in the Conference tables.
  • You can offer as many workshops as you want. One, none, 2 different, a series of days and / or repeat the same 2 and 3 times.

  • At the beginning of your workshop it is worth making an introduction to the subject so that the attendees can confirm if it is what they expected based on the description and if they want to stay.

  • Respectively, if you choose to go to a workshop yourself and in the end you are not interested, you can leave at any time. You don't have to explain, just do it discreetly. The result is a workshop full of people who are really interested in the subject.

  • If only two people are in a workshop, it will be a great opportunity to get to know each other better. If thirty are collected, there is likely to be more diversity and interesting questions.
  • It may take some time to get used to this approach, but once that is done, you will feel the "flow" of the conference.

In addition, this year, throughout the conference, will operate EN EUDEC which will offer workshops, performances and other events for all ages including babies and toddlers (accompanied and not). Our tools are theatrical alchemy, creative circus, dance, acrobatics, improvisation, music, song, object and doll theater, the visual arts and constructions, fairy tale and play.
We would like to encourage you to lead an activity so that you can share with the community good practices, knowledge, questions or just your enthusiasm! If you have already any idea, you can send a description to stelios@eudec.gr and he will upload it to this program so that others can see it.

Location

The venue

Due to unforeseen circumstances there has been a change of venue.There is nothing to worry about, as the conference dates and program will remain exactly the same (1-7 August + the opportunity to stay camped there until the 10th of August) and the new venue is even closer to Heraklion port/airport.

A few words about Κορφές (τη νέα τοποθεσία):

Οι Κορφές είναι χωριό του Δήμου Μαλεβιζίου του Νομού Ηρακλείου, με 293 κατοίκους κατά την απογραφή πληθυσμού του 2011. Είναι χτισμένο ανάμεσα  σε επτά λόφους και γι’ αυτό έλαβε την ονομασία Κορφές. Βρίσκεται 15 χιλιόμετρα από την κοντινότερη παραλία (Αμμουδάρα). Η κύρια ασχολία των κατοίκων είναι η αμπελοκαλλιέργεια και η ελαιοκομία. Παράγεται σταφίδα και λάδι.

Ο Δρυς του χωριού (φωτογραφία) έχει κηρυχθεί διατηρητέο μνημείο της φύσης. Πρόκειται για αιωνόβιο δρυ με ιδιάζουσα βοτανική και αισθητική αξία που συνδέεται με ιστορικά γεγονότα της περιοχής.

Κοντινότερο αεροδρόμιο: Ηράκλειο (περίπου 30 λεπτά μακριά – 25 χλμ. από το χώρο του συνεδρίου)
Κοντινότερο λιμάνι: Ηράκλειο (περίπου 30 λεπτά μακριά – 25 χλμ. από το χώρο του συνεδρίου)
Κοντινότερες παραλίες: περίπου 30 λεπτά (25 χλμ.) από παραλίες βόρειας Κρήτης και 45 λεπτά (35χλμ.) από παραλίες νότιας Κρήτης

Car pooling

Για όσους θέλουν να έρθουν οδικώς και ψάχνουν συνεπιβάτες/συνοδηγούς, φτιάξαμε αυτό το έγγραφο.

Crete

Ένας από τους πιο διάσημους τουριστικούς προορισμούς παγκοσμίως! Απίστευτο φαγητό, πανέμορφες παραλίες, εξαιρετικές πεζοπορίες και πολλά άλλα…

Θα προσπαθήσουμε να κανονίσουμε κάποια μετα-συνεδριακά δρώμενα, αλλά σας ενθαρρύνουμε να ρίξετε μια ματια και μόνοι σας. Το αγαπημένο μου μέρος είναι το Κεδρόδασος, από τους τελευταίους ανέγγιχτους παράδεισους, στην άλλη άκρη της Κρήτης.
