119th European Seminar:

Children’s Rights

Academy of Bad Wildbad, 26-30 May 2008

____________________________________________________________

CONTEXT

What does it mean to be a child in the 21st century? What didactic and methodological approches in secondary schools contribute to stengthen the children’s rights? The Council of Europe examines how policies relating to the development of children’s rights can be most effectively implemented in schools and how teachers and all education professionals can be most effectively supported. These are some of the main topics this seminar organised in Bad Wildbad has reflected on.

KEY DOCUMENTS

Report of the seminar and Appendices.

Children’s Rights are related to Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights (EDC/HRE). Children need to know what rights they have and how to use them.

Peter Krapf and Rolf Gollob, one of the experts on the team of the Bad Wildbad seminar, have designed the publication “Exploring Children’s Rights” as teaching tools for primary school teachers providing them with a wide range of learning experiences in a setting that is governed by the spirit of democracy and human rights.

This publication is available
in English, French, Azeri and Russian.
