Dear go teachers of Europe,

You are cordially invited to take part in Teach the Teachers, a special event organised by the European Go Cultural Centre in cooperation with the EGF and the IGF. This symposium will take place in the weekend of 5-6 October in Amstelveen, the Netherlands, and is a follow-up of the Teachers' Day that was held in the EGCC in 2017.

Teach the Teachers aims to bring together the bright organising minds of the European go world: do you teach go in your country, or even beyond? Are you involved in the organisation of your national go association and/or do you promote go on a local or broader scale? Then this event is for you.

During the course of two days, you will discuss different ways of teaching go with likeminded people. For this special occassion, three professional players from Japan, Korea and China will be flown over to provide workshops and share their professional knowledge on how to teach our sport, with an emphasis on how to promote go in schools. And you are also encouraged to give your own presentation!

The event is free of charge, with lunch included. There are several budget accommodation options in the vicinity of the European Go Centre, such as Ibis Hotel Amsterdam-Zuid (Professor J.H. Bavincklaan 1), forest cottages for up to 8 people in Amsterdamse Bos, and several free sleeping places at local go players.

Would you like to join the event? Please send an e-mail to, including your name, country and information about your involvement in the world of teaching go.
A precise schedule will follow soon.
