This pack was put together by Potential Plus UK’s Shadow Board. The Shadow Board is made up of young members who help to steer our strategy for supporting children with high learning potential.
This pack was devised to mark European Talent Day. which was celebrated on Saturday 9th April 2013 and contains information and resources about the food, language and customs of different EU countries (and some others too!)
EU Talent Day was organised by the Hungarian Presidency and it marked the end of a major European Conference on Talent Development which opened in Budapest on Thursday 7th April 2013. Some 350 participants from 25 countries were in attendance.
You can find more details of other events at http://talentday.eu, as well as the Conference Programme and information about Hungary’s wider plans for EU-wide support.
We hope you find the resource pack interesting and useful and that the Hungarian initiative will help to raise the profile of gifted education in the EU, so increasing the attention it receives from all our national governments.
