This publication aims to share good practices of Human Rights Education. The good practices come in a variety of forms, from training courses and publications to educational tools and strategies, and are primarily based on the principles and methodology of non-formal education.
The intention is to show that Human Rights Education comes in many forms and is something that ordinary people and local organisations all over the member states of the Council of Europe are doing.
The adoption of the Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education (EDC/HRE) in 2010, prepared by the Education and Youth sectors, recognises the role of youth organisations and non-formal learning in implementing human rights education.
It is hoped that this collection of examples will support other organisations and individuals as well reproduce some of these examples in their own work or be inspired to develop their own examples.
