The first Gifted Awareness Week in Germany takes place from 3-9 June 2013. In celebration of the Gifted Awareness Week, we will be working to raise awareness through a range of initiatives like, interviews, blogs and articles about Gifted Education.

We are also working with other national and international organisations to raise awareness of the needs of our gifted and talented children, their parents and educators, who are working with them.

How to participate: 

  • Read the articles, interviews and blogs.
  • Share them with your friends on the social media like, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+,..
  • Write a blog, ahead of time, about Gifted Children and their problems or needs. Send it via Email to us. We will publish it on our website.
  • Join our event on June 9th at Juki in Munich. 

Whatever you do to support this event is very important to raise this awareness for our gifted and talented children.

Each day we will post the links to the articles, blogs, and interviews shown below.
