Dear EurECA friends,

FINALLY, THE ‘HOPEFUL FUTURE’ CONFERENCE - IN PERSON AND ONLINE - REGISTER NOW!

Thank you for your great patience as we have been working through the challenges in preparing our conference this year. We have GOOD NEWS.

The Proem Centre in Poland, our hosts this year, have been doing a wonderful job caring for many hundreds of guests from Ukraine. Despite all of this, they can host us as planned, though for not as many as we originally hoped. Currently, we have 20 more spaces available, all at the original ‘early bird’ prices.

The recent throne speech and provincial budget in Alberta commit to increasing the variety and types of schooling available to Alberta children — pluralism in education, in other words.
