Remembrance Day provides us with an opportunity to memorialise and honour those who have died in conflict from World War One to the present day. It is important to create space to reflect on past conflicts and acknowledge their cost to humanity. It is also important to provide time and space to reflect on how we teach history, exploring who, what and how we choose to remember. This not only enables us to consider different voices and stories, but also helps us to think about the lessons that we can learn from our past.
This one-hour webinar explores how we can engage with our history in a way that acknowledges different experiences and perspectives, and reflect upon its relevance in the present day.
