Edela Eesti Arenduskeskus is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called “Human Rights in Crisis: Reviewing HRE Practice in Youth Work” which will take place from 11th until 18th June 2012 in Dilijan, Armenia.
Global economic crisis, rising unemployment, civil unrest in Europe, Middle East and North America have brought new challenges for Human Rights Education. The concept of Human Rights has been criticized from different directions and perspectives. Can we afford Human Rights? Can they offer responses to contemporary challenges young people face? How do we adapt HRE to new realities?
These are the questions this seminar aims to address.
“Human Rights in Crisis: Reviewing HRE Practice in Youth Work” aims to exchange experiences and good practice and develop competences of youth workers in the field of Human Rights Education at national and regional level and to enable them to act as trainers or multipliers for human rights education, especially through national or regional seminars and local pilot projects.
The seminar is designed to give participants the opportunity to experience and reflect upon activities and concepts central to human rights education based on experiential learning approaches. The course is also designed as a mutual learning situation, where participants can compare their approaches to training and to human rights education across Europe in a dialogical intercultural approach and environment.
This event will bring together 24 participants from European Union countries and Caucasus countries. The event will be held in English. There are 2 vacancies available and participants should
have minimum 18 years old.
The Youth in Action programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse the participants with 70% of the travel costs. There will be a participation fee of 30 Eur. per participant.
