The Youth Department of the Council of Europe seeks to select up to 70 participants to represent the children, youth and civil society sectors in this conference that aims to discuss the Conclusions of the Report on the State of Citizenship and Human Rights Education in Europe, to share experiences and lessons learnt and to propose recommendations for future action. The participants will propose strategic goals for the next five years to promote citizenship and human rights education, both within the countries and in the European and global context. About 300 participants are expected at this event, including representatives of governments, education professionals and civil society organisations. The conclusions of the conference will also inform the Council of Europe Programme of Activities in the Education and Youth sectors in 2018-9 and beyond.
Training workshops for the representatives of the youth, children and civil society sector will take place on 19 and 22 June to further update on the latest developments in the field and to enhance their advocacy competences in relation to the Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education.
All interested candidates should apply by 12 April 2017, 13:00 CET on http://youthapplications.coe.int .
