To this end, the project partners have developed this website which is an open educational platform with a variety of tools and activities as well as supportive material in the realm of human rights education that can be used by youth workers in the respective countries. The platform is available in all the languages of the consortium as well as in English.
A transnational non-formal learning mobility between the partner organisations, with representatives from the partner organisations, will learn about the objectives and methods of human rights education. This will take place in Limassol, Cyprus from the 17-24th June, 2017.
A round-table discussion took place in each country with policy makers, representatives of the formal and non-formal educational sectors as well as youth groups and organisations, for purposes of discussing the significance of human rights education in both formal and non-formal educational settings and advocating for steps and measures to be taken along a variety of levels, for purposes of promoting and facilitating the recognition and adoption of human rights education by groups, organisations and institutions. This occured within the framework of the Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights in relation to the European countries participating and, in the cases of Cameroon, the partner utilised the Charter as a good practice template which the respective countries can build upon for purposes of recognising, implementing and promoting the use of human rights education. The online platform was presented to participants during this activity.
Each partner conducted a series of awareness-raising seminars in their countries for purposes of empowering young people to know and uphold their rights through the method of human rights education. A total of 260 youngsters were trained throughout the consortium.
