Within the project “Preparing Future Teachers in the Western Balkans”, a network of universities including various faculties such as natural science, mathematics and pedagogy from six Western Balkan countries has been set up by EWC in 2019.
The network is a tool to strengthen regional cooperation for democratic developments in education and to address common challenges in a regionwhich still struggles with ethnic, religious and nationalist tensions.
A teacher trainer from a university in Albania highlights the benefits:
“Participation in this project provides a good opportunity to exchange experiences with university colleagues from different countries in the region and work together to contribute to changing our region for the better. It enables us to make new contacts with experts and to encourage future collaborative initiatives in the field of human rights, citizenship and democracy, development discipline and training programs of teachers.”
