On behalf of the IAU and the SOC and LOC of the meeting, we are glad to announce the IAU Symposium number 367 (IAUS 367) on “Education and Heritage in the Era of Big Data in Astronomy. The first steps on the IAU 2020–2030 Strategic Plan” to be held in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina, 9-14 of December 2020, with the support of Divisions A, B, C, E and F.
The primary aim of this Symposium is to provide a global vision of Education and Heritage in the frame of the goals of IAU Strategic Plan, as well as to outline a road map and a global astronomy education agenda for the next decade, while honouring the education from the past.
In this sense, a central objective of the meeting is to increase the quality and impact of astronomy education by encouraging the use of new learning practices, not only at university level, but also at school level, taking into account the inclusion of minorities and equity.
In addition, the occurrence of the total solar eclipse that will cross the north of Patagonia on December 14th, 2020 is an incentive for all the attendants to the Symposium, and the observation of the event at the end of the meeting, will be a great closing ceremony.

Hoping to meet you in Bariloche in 2020, we send to you the best regards,
IAUS367 SOC and LOC
