Lithuanian Center for Human Rights in cooperation with the Council of Europe Youth Department organised Compass “Education for Life: Human Rights Themes and Methods for Working with Youth" National Training Course in Human Rights Education from 20 to 24 June in Antalieptė, Lithuania.

The Course gathered twenty teachers and non-formal education practitioners from various regions of Lithuania to work together and to learn about the developments of human rights education and democratic values. The focus of the training course was to equip participants with skills, knowledge, and the attitude needed to become multipliers for the implementation of human rights education activities with young people in formal and non-formal education sectors. The Minister of Education, Science and Sports of the Republic of Lithuania, Jurgita Šiugždinienė, welcomed the participants at the opening session.

The organisers of the Course encouraged the participants to be actively engaged in applying the principles of human rights education in their classroom and school activities, thus enabling the more active participation of key multipliers on both local and national levels.
