On 16 May 2011 the EMC held a highly successful seminar on music education in cooperation with the UNESCO Commission Germany. Entitled From Seoul to Bonn – Translating the Goals for the Development of Arts Education to Music in Europe, the seminar explored the impact of the Seoul Agenda: Goals for the Development of Arts Education in Europe concentrating on the three goals in the document:
- Social and Cultural Challenges
The UNESCO Seoul Agenda is a major outcome of UNESCO's Second World Conference on Arts Education held in Seoul, the Republic of Korea, in May 2010.
A wide range of representatives active in the field of music education made their way from all parts of Europe to the exquisite setting of the Deutsche Welle Building in Bonn, Germany, to take part in the EMC seminar on music education. Through interactive discussions they were given the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas and to examine the factors which constitute formal, non-formal and informal music education in European countries today, whilst working together towards producing a first set of recommendations for a Bonn Declaration on Music Education in Europe.
