The educational system focuses on accumulation of knowledge and information, however it does not offer a space for acquisition and development of skills, which could boost our own ideas. Human rights education is just a formal part of curriculum and there is no systematic support of human rights education in conventional education. The lack of knowledge and skills in human rights area is reflected in the higher intolerance towards members of minority groups as well as in lower awareness about our own rights and freedom. We believe, every school should be a creative and supportive place for the own ideas and opinions hence the current youth is an active citizen in the future.
Goal: strengthen the active citizenship, raise the awareness, skills and quality of education in the area of human rights.
