Human Rights to Care
is a training course funded by the Erasmus+ programme that took place in picturesque town Králíky, Czech Republic. The event hosted 24 participants from Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Turkey.
Ideas of Human Rights were enrolled in a long historical development, from the "Magna Carta", 1215 to the present. International and local organizations, treaties, codes, declarations, reports of compliance, trainings, round tables, debates, polls - all in all a created system for one purpose only: Respect for HR. But nowadays, our rights and the system coming to protect them are threatened, there is a global attack on fundamental freedoms. Fears of terror attacks and potential impact of refugee influx led to a scaling back of rights in Europe and other regions. We face the reality of discrimination, violence, terror, racism and the collapse of all the efforts done for a peaceful living.
We consider that now than ever it is important to raise awareness on human rights issues, reaffirm faith of fundamental Human Rights and produce changes in values, attitudes and behavior in today and tomorrow’s generation of youth. We see the need to increase the number of youth workers who are aware of the responsibility towards the rights we are entitled to, and enable them to advocate for strengthened rights protection and promotion in their countries.
So the Human Rights to Care project has come into being. We approached this topic the non-formal educational way. The project equipped youth workers with competences and methods needed for transferring the common fundamental values of our society particularly to the hard to reach young people and preventing violent radicalisation of young people as well. Regarding human rights, together we have broaden our knowledge, increased our capacity to assess, shaped attitudes and after all this, we are enable to share our gained skills with the youth.Infopack
