Community Centre for Integrated Development (Cameroon), The organizations AEQUITAS (Cyprus), IN-PLANET (Greece), LLERE (Spain), and The Quadrant Academy (The Philippines) are starting the implementation of the project ‘Above and Beyond: Promoting the Use of Human Rights Education as a Tool for Change,’ which is co-financed by the ERASMUS + programme of the European Commission. The project takes place from January 2017 until January 2018.
The project seeks to foster cooperation and exchanges of good practices in the field of human rights education between programme countries and partner countries. Through the project activities, the partners seek to improve the quality of youth work in the respective countries by incorporating or improving the dimension and use of human rights education by youth workers. To this end, the project partners will develop an open educational platform in all partner languages with a variety of tools, activities as well as supportive material in the realm of human rights education that can be used by youth workers in the respective countries. This will serve to facilitate the access to the relevant material as it will be an open educational resource bringing the main tools that exist within the sphere of human rights education. There will be a round-table discussion in each country with policy makers, representatives of the formal and non-formal educational sector 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.
There was a transnational non-formal learning mobility between partners in Cyprus during which participants learned about the objectives and methods of human rights education. 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.
