What educators need from copyright reform?

21 Jun 2017

On the 21st of June, Marietje Schaake is hosting a debate organised by Communia in the European Parliament on "What educators need from copyright reform".

From the organisers:

The voice of educators is often overlooked in copyright reform debates. We want to change that. We are inviting practitioners and experts from the field of education to speak about ways in which copyright can support 21st century education. During the meeting, we will highlight how the educational sector can benefit from a strong exception, to be introduced in the Copyright Directive. We will also present results of the "Right Copyright for Education" campaign ( - a petition to the European Parliament signed by almost 5000 educators and citizens from across Europe.

Date: Wednesday, 21 June 2017 Time: 12:30 - 14:15

Sandwiches and drinks will be available.
