Dear EUDEC Newsletter Subscribers,
This is our first EUDEC Newletter after a long break. EUDEC has two systems for sharing news and annoucements: a newsletter that goes to anyone who has signed up on the eudec webpage and a "bulletin", which goes to EUDEC members only. Our main reason for sending a new newletter was to announce the opening of registration for this summer's EUDEC conference in the Netherlands.
If you are not a EUDEC member but enjoy receiving news from the world of democratic education, please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we will try to send these newsletters more regularly. If you would like to unsubscribe, simply click on the unsubscribe-link at the bottom of this newsletter-email or write a message to: unsubscribe-newsletter at eudec.org
EUDEC 2013 Conference in the Netherlands - Registration Now Open
The registration page for the EUDEC2013 conference is available for you to register for this great yearly event: http://www.eudec.org/eudec2013.
Like last year, we plan to do a lot of interactive workshops and have fun together. There will be entertainment, and there will be serious meetings like the AGM (annual general meeting). Excursions will also be organized. The venue is De Ruimte Democratic School in Soest. Soest is in the centre of the Netherlands, not far from cities like Utrecht, Amersfoort or Hilversum. Daytrips are possible to any other big city if you wish to combine your visit with holidays.
The conference group has organized inexpensive accommodation. At the venue camping for up to 100-150 people can be organized. Here we also offer the option of sleeping in hired tents (up to 10 persons per tent). Another option is to stay in a squatted house, or to camp at an organic farm. Only a few places can be arranged sleeping with families. Prices and choices are shown on the registration form. These sleeping facilities are on a first come, first serve basis.
Our theme this year: We Create The Future! And surely we will do that by interacting as much as possible between different people from many different countries. We all will form the spark that ignites larger groups of people all over Europe to think differently about education.
Be sure to register soon, because an Early Bird discount of 10% is now available till the 1st of April.

Announcement from the organisers of the IDEC 2013 in Colorado
We are excited to kick off the new year by announcing our program! While many elements will continue to be added and developed in the coming months, you can get a flavor of the IDEC 2013 experience here.
IDEC 2013 will be a unique international gathering of changemakers built around how we can create, model and build a just, sustainable and democratic educational system in the world. The experience will include a rich blend of pre-scheduled events and the fluidity needed to host conversations and workshops using a hybrid of Open Space Technology.
Be prepared for a conference experience unlike any other - we'll be pushing the boundaries of what we mean by learning, sharing, connecting and creating. Learn more here.

IDEC 2013 is a conference that brings together practitioners, organizers, academics, youth, and educators for an international exchange on the transformation of communities, schools, and learning to ensure that all young people can engage meaningfully in their education and gain the tools to build a just, sustainable, and democratic world.
David Gribble's Latest Libertarian Education Articles
For over forty years, Lib Ed has actively promoted freedom in education by organising meetings, conferences and other events and by publishing books, pamphlets and magazines.
The last printed issue of the magazine was in the summer of 1999 and for a few years Lib Ed limited its activities to the publication of books, but since 2006 groups of articles have been published on the website three times a year.
A new batch of interesting articles have just been published so check them out on the Libertarian Education website. The new articles include “Disgruntled Teachers”, “The Radical Education Forum”, “High Learning Potential?”, “Human Scale Education” and news about the international conferences happening in 2013. There is also a really interesting short video in the archives called “Playing Out” which is worth a watch! - http://www.libed.org.uk/sept12/playing-out.html
Knowmad Society – A New Online Book
In a world driven by exponential accelerating technological and social change, globalization, and a push for more creative and context-driven innovations, how can we ensure the success of ourselves as individuals, communities, and the planet? Knowmad Society explores the future of learning, work and how we relate with each other in this emerging paradigm.
On the 21st December 2012 there was an event to launch “Knowmad Society”, a new book edited by John Moravec with chapters written by ten collaborators including a chapter written by Christel Hartkamp about Sudbury Schools and Democratic Education in Knowmad Society. This is just one of very many exciting things happening in the world of democratic education in The Netherlands at the moment.
The book is available online here and as an iPhone app http://www.knowmadsociety.com/book/index.php?page=Table_of_contents
