Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights (EDC/HRE)


National training courses in human rights education

The Council of Europe has launched a call for expressions of interest from non-governmental organisations, public institutions and/or network to organise training courses in 2014. The national training courses in human rights education are an integral part of the programme on human rights education with young people of the Youth Department of the Council of Europe and aim to contribute to the development and accessibility of human rights education in member states.

The national training courses should aim at training key multipliers in human rights education (youth workers, trainers, teachers, teacher trainers, peer educators, etc.) on how to plan, implement and evaluate human rights education activities based on the approaches laid out in Compass. The national training courses should also be a chance to advocate and learn how to advocate for human rights education at national and local level, and should contribute to the establishment of national networks of practitioners and their sustainability.

The Council of Europe Youth Department is offering financial, educational and institutional support for such courses in 2014.

The deadline for receipt of expressions of interest is 10 January 2014.

If you are interested in running a training course, fulfil the criteria and have the necessary competencies, please return the expression of interest form to If you have further questions on the call and the criteria please do not hesitate to contact Anca-Ruxandra Pandea, Educational advisor,
