Conference on the Future of Citizenship and Human Rights Education in Europe

This conference will address the promotion of democracy and human rights through education. Around 300 representatives of governments, education institutions and civil society organisations will discuss current challenges and opportunities, share examples of good practices and lessons learnt, and propose recommendations for future action, including specific criteria and mechanisms for evaluation of progress, in particular in the framework of the Council of Europe Charter on Citizenship and Human Rights Education.

One of the case studies being presented is on the participation of 200 children from 8 Member States in the drafting process of comprehensive guidelines for member States to empower, protect and support children’s rights in the digital environment, prepared by the Ad-Hoc Committee on the Rights of the Child (CAHENF).

Deputy Secretary General Gabriella Battaini-Dragoni and Stanislav Štech, Deputy Minister of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic will open the event.
