Colleagues may be interested in the following email:
Many apologies for my rather cryptic email yesterday which was meant to go somewhere else! I wanted to let you know that ECSWE and AfC-ENG, with the support of the Lifelong Learning Programme have just published a book called "Improving the Quality of Childhood in the European Union'. The publication consists of talks given by a range of experts to the Working Group on the Quality of Childhood at the European Parliament throughout 2009.
QOC was created in 2006 by the European Council for Steiner Waldorf Education (ECSWE), the Austrian Member of the European Parliament Mrs Karin Resetarits MEP and the Alliance for Childhood European Network Group. Its aim is to improve the Quality of Childhood in the European Union and in the European Educational Space. It has been meeting every two months since 2006 in the Parliament building in Brussels and it has involved prominent organisations in Europe and high profile keynote speakers on important themes at European level.
The book is available free of charge from our office with a charge being made for postage and packing according to destination and weight.
Please let me know if you would like a copy.
