Activities of ECA
The ECA is involved in a variety of activities to push their conductive education awareness work and achieve their goals.
ECA a partner of the worldwide digital platform for Conductive Education: ConductMe
ConductMe is a worldwide digital platform for everyone with an interest in Conductive Education to connect, educate, discuss and learn – for equal value for all.
As a partner of ConductMe we want to secure the future of Conductive Education. We believe that sharing knowledge is the key to a brighter future and together we can make a change.
We support the platform with information and our network. Partners of ConductMe are conductors, organizations, institutes and businesses, working with the concept of Conductive Education. We share the same goal: Spread and strengthen Conductive Education!
The founder of ConductMe, Eszter Horváth Tóthné, also conductor, is one of our ECA Board Members. ConductMe has gone live in 2021 and ECA is currently working with pressure on conductive material to be uploaded and made available for customer use.
ConductMe will speed up the spread of Conductive Education and highlight and manifest its potential.
The world is changing, ECA is part of it!
ConductMe is free for everyone to use! http://www.conductme.com
