List of TST meetings since 1998

meeting.jpgThe TST has played a valuable role in bringing together teachers, educators, students, historians and heritage specialists at both regional and interregional levels in a climate of mutual respect, sharing and solidarity. From the beginning of the Project, it was decided that each time a major event was to take place in one continent, it would include representatives of the two others.

Some 25 major TST encounters have taken place, enabling a fruitful intercultural dialogue and interaction and a common commitment to combat all forms of discrimination and contemporary forms of enslavement.
