NECE in the centre of Glasgow!

Glasgow will be an ideal city to host a conference on inequalities and citizenship education. With its heritage of industrialisation, post-industrial decline and social movements it provides an opportunity to learn about the still existing evidence of extreme inequalities and poverty in the city. At the same time, a vibrant and active civil, tech and cultural scene is waiting for us to be explored.

Please find here useful organisational information – directions to the conference venue and suggestions for activities in your free time.

Unfortunately the organisers cannot cover travel or accommodation costs and cannot assist you in the booking process. Nevertheless, we would like to help you find an accommodation in Glasgow, therefore we have compiled a list of affordable hotels in the area of the conference venue: Hotel Suggestions

Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC)

The conference venue TIC is a facility of the University of Strathclyde, working at the interface between research, innovation and technology development in the very city centre of Glasgow – offers the ideal space and atmosphere for the special format of NECE with its networking opportunities and open spaces, a huge variety of workshops and a diverse crowd of educators and activists from more than 40 countries.

In a European project market, civil society initiatives and NECE focus groups will present their work and invite people to talk and network; field trips to organisations working in the fields of citizenship and cultural education will foster a hands-on experience of the challenges that heterogeneous societies are currently facing.
