Call for applications for the new Evens Prize for Education dedicated to critical thinking as a practice of freedom

For the 2020 edition, we are looking for inspiration and new ideas to foster the motivation and abilities to think critically about social questions.  To counteract the fact that practice and research are often two worlds apart, we invite applications in two categories:

  • Embedded practices that support critical thinking about social questions
  • Scholarly but practice-oriented work that furthers our understanding of practices, pedagogies, curricula or projects that foster critical thinking, and the conditions in which education for critical thinking can thrive

The call is open to a broad variety of practices implemented in institutional and non-institutional spaces by teachers, scholars, students, educators, youth workers, artists, civil society organizations, citizen groups etc. This includes formal, non-formal and community-based education for youth as well as adults.

Further information about the criteria and the procedure can be found here.

If you would like to apply, please read the Call for Applications first and then download and fill in the Application Form. Both can be found on our website.

Please do not hesitate to contact Marjolein Delvou if you have any queries: Marjolein [dot] delvou [at] evensfoundation [dot] be
