"On behalf of the city of Sibiu, it would be a great pleasure to welcome the 19th Biennial Conference on Teachers and Teaching in 2019.
Sibiu was the European Capital of Culture in 2007 along with Luxemburg, which has not only been a success, but also the engine of the city's cultural economical and touristic development. Sibiu was chosen to be European Region of Gastronomy in 2019.
Sibiu, the capital of Transylvania between the 17th and 19th century, has the largest medieval old town in Romania and is in many ways a city of superlatives. It was in Sibiu that the first school opened in south-eastern Europe and teacher training has a long tradition here.
The city of Sibiu would be well-suited to host an international event focusing on education, which is one of the most important issues of every society.
We would be delighted to welcome the members of the prestigious International Study Association on Teachers and Teaching (ISATT) and proud to be able to add a new event in our century long tradition in education.
We are looking forward to seeing you in 2019!

Astrid Cora Fodor
Mayor of Sibiu
