Using the terror attacks in Norway 22 July 2011 as a starting point, young people, teachers and other educators learn to creatre a democratic culture and stand up against discrimination, hate speech and extremism through tools and strategies based on education for democratic citizenship and human rights. The programme is a partnership with the learning - and commemoration centres at Utøya and in Oslo.
In 150 schools with refugee pupils across Greece, school directors and teachers are trained to create safe and inclusive schools and classrooms where refugees are welcomed into a learning environment which aims to provide quality education to all.
12 higher education institutions and universities and their staff from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia are trained and supported to develop and integrate new teacher education modules with a focus on practice-oriented teaching promoting citizenship, democracy and human rights.
In addtion to the major programmes outlined above, EWC also carries out other projects in the field of Education for Democratic Citizenship, Human Rights and Intercultural Understanding with the view of entering into new areas and developing new methods.
