History Stream – Projects, Events etc. for ASH2020

This page contains a list of all projects, events or activities that the History Stream Team has elected to develop as their part of the ASH2020 Program. The items listed below are normally selected from the Idea Bank, but some may have emerged from discussions/brainstorming among the History Stream Team, not having featured in the original Idea Bank. To qualify for inclusion in this list, an entry must have been assigned to a ‘Contact’, in effect a project manager who is charged with the development and delivery of the Project, Event etc.

Each of the listed entries, representing a discrete Project, Event or Activity, may be linked to a subsidiary page or set of pages which is designed to provide further information on the Project (etc.). These subsidiary pages may also be used by the Stream Team to manage the project, acting as a source of information, guidelines, schedules, forms, minutes, action lists or whatever can usefully be made available to the members of the project Team. For an example of this, go to History and navigate down to the project ‘The Big History Trail’.

Inclusion in this list does not necessarily mean that the project will be included in the eventual ASH2020 Program, which will be compiled towards the end of 2019. The final decision will depend, inter alia, on the quality of preparation and the likelihood that the project delivery will be successful.
