The organizers of the GHEC 2012 presented this historic declaration on November 3, 2012 at the first-ever Global Home Education Conference in Berlin, Germany and adopted it via a board resolution. The Berlin Declaration compiles for the first time an easily accessible record of the numerous international treaties and declarations that recognize the role of parents and the family in education. Through this document, the signatories aim to support home education in becoming globally recognized as the valid form of education that it truly is.
