Dear members of HREYN, We are happy to announce a Call for facilitators for the study session titled ”AHRE - Advocating for Human Rights Education” that will take place on April 20-25 2020 at the EYCB - European Youth Center Budapest.

- to provide specific tools for advocacy to individuals and civil society organizations;

- to create supporting tools for civil society organizations to advocate human rights education under the framework of the EDC/HRE Charter.

- to develop specific action plans for advocating human rights education at a national or local level based on the situational analysis.


The study session will be based on the approaches and methodologies of human rights education practiced by the Council of Europe, hence the learning process will ensure non-formal and highly participative activities involving both individual and group learning structured in a holistic way.
