Introduction / activities

This newsletter will probably not reach all of you before the holidays, but I will send it again to our Scandinavian friends in early August when they return from their summer holiday.
I will only mention BREXIT this once:
For the last 4 or 5 years, the EEPG hasn't had a British member and yet it is thriving ....
But seriously: A lot happened in April, May and June - the "What Works conference" in London and most importantly our very successful network meeting in Aarhus (see below).
As already at the beginning of the year, there have been several requests by members to assist with arguments for a free textbook market. Lithuania, Portugal and Greece, for example, face new challenges, in Greece the minister of education wants to have textbooks produced by teachers supervised by the ministry, effectively cutting out the publisher all together (see below).
