Lev Vygotsky Prize of the European Federation of Psychologists Associations will be awarded for the first time in Moscow in 2019!
«Issues related to nurturing and education are key for modern society and its’ development. That’s why Russian Psychological Society proposed an international prize which is aimed at recognition of merits in the field of childhood research, popularization of scientific knowledge about childhood, education and development for the sake of education of the younger generation» — said Yuri Zinchenko, the Dean, Faculty of Psychology, Lomonosov Moscow State University.
Vygotsky’s legacy is associated with understanding of human development and learning. He was in close dialogue with scientists from different countries, which made his research not only relevant for his time and allowed to see a picture of understanding childhood, upbringing and learning from various points of view, but also created a unique cultural-historical approach that combined anthropology, psychology and pedagogy.
Lev Vygotsky Prize will be awarded biannually by European Federation of Psychologists Associations, which unites psychological societies from 34 European countries. The Prize will be launched during the 16th European Psychological Congress, which will be held 2-5 July 2019 in Moscow, Russia.
