Connecting the Past To Present and To Future

HEIRNET is a friendly, diverse, inclusive and supportive association that brings together colleagues from around the world interested in History Education's cultural, educational, ideological, moral, social, political, religious and citizenship roles.

Amsterdam is the perfect venue for the live and online HEIRNET 2022 conference. Since the 16th century cosmopolitan  Amsterdam has been at the heart of Europe’s cultural and economic transformation  that still permeates our sense of identity and helps shape our future as reflected in the conference theme: Connecting the Past To Present To Future.

  • Covid-19, Climate Change / Global Warming and International Warfare in Europe and the Middle East
