Encouraging the Gifted in the context of Migration and Intercultural Exchange
2 – 5 March, 2016
Given the long tradition of education and migration in many European countries, the topics of multiculturalism and intercultural exchange are key priorities on the educational agenda, as well as being natural prerequisites for peaceful co-existence in the 21st century. Giftedness and high potential in a multicultural society is also a topic most relevant and of high interest all over Europe.
Talents and high abilities are equally distributed among all cultural, ethnic, religious and socio-economic groups. Therefore, potentials and abilities of children, youngsters and young adults with a migration background need to be specially advanced. Thus, the ECHA Conference 2016 focuses on the intercultural and multicultural awareness of educating the (highly) gifted.
The Institute TIBI and its partners are glad to invite you to this meeting in Vienna, March 2016. Only the contribution, cooperation and appreciation of the different cultural backgrounds can guarantee a prosperous social development. This attitude should find expression in various opportunities for personal meetings and in the exchange of content-related views of the conference participants.
