More about the project:
Building on our experience from The Human Rights Cafe at IPC, the project will be implemented in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project will be composed of 24 Alumnis from various countries. The participation in the project will provide the participants with broader knowledge about human rights, with special focus on children protection and refugees law, responsibility to protect doctrine (R2P), together with knowledge about international institutions and organizations supporting promotion and education about Human Rights, such as United Nations and Council of Europe as well as conflict resolution methods. Besides the theoretical knowledge, the main aim of the project is to equip the participants in practical tools and methods needed in youth work, in order to enrich their skills and simplified acting as Human Rights educators. The project will be run by experienced youth trainers with academic background and practical expertise from humanitarian and development projects related to the topic of the project.
The main core of the project is 6-days long training course. During the stay, participants will be participating in games, simulations and exercises about the topic. Due to active participation in activities and evaluation provided for any of them as well as for the whole training, the youth leaders and youth workers will learn how to implement the knowledge learned in practical activities and workshops after being back home.
