Enabling children and young people to learn and to exercise their right to human rights education
Thirty youth workers and educators attend this training courses, co-organised by the Children’s Rights Division and the Youth Department of the Council of Europe. The course is based on Compasito, the manual for human rights education with children. The course prepares the participants to act as multipliers in Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education.
Learning about and experiencing children’s rights helps children to understand what human rights are about, to understand that they are rights-holders themselves, and to adapt and apply their rights in everyday life. This is a pre-condition to commonly build a culture of universal human rights and is an integral part of a right-based approach to youth policy.
