On 15 December 2008, CSC – together with the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community (COMECE) and the European Commission – organised a Dialogue Seminar in Brussels on “Quality Education in an Intercultural Environment”. The Intereuropean Commission on Church and School (ICCS), an associated organisation of CEC, and the Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe (CCME) made a pivotal contribution to the contents of the seminar.
The seminar, which brought together experts on education and migration from churches and church-related organisations, EU institutions and the academic world, examined opportunities and challenges of cultural diversity for educational systems in Europe. The seminar contributed to the (then) ongoing public consultation on the European Commission “Green Paper on migration and mobility: challenges and opportunities for EU education systems” issued on 3 July 2008.
