The complexity and sometimes immaturity human relationships, the uncertainty of the future, the poor economic situation, the obsolescence of the human “prosopon”, the loss of national identity, the wandering in places distant from the roots and the common Byzantine origin of Europe, strengthen the presence and the role of Moral Education in the curriculum of the European Schools.This program aims to bring together teachers from different countries to share ideas and concerns and discuss problems and prospects of RE / moral education in Europe of tomorrow.
