EWC is, in addition to the projects mentioned below, currently developing a Nordic project on teaching controversial issues: More details will follow soon.

"Hate, I'm against" gives Polish and Norwegian students the skills and tools to organize social campaigns against hate speech and discrimination in their schools and local environments.

Learning Democracy at Utøya– Polish-Norwegian Youth Meetings

Completed projects

POLIN Museum of History of the Polish Jews and The European Wergeland Centre (EWC) offer a 3-day workshop in Norway for teams of students (16-19 years old) and teachers from upper secondary schools in Poland and Norway. The seminar is followed by student-led activities at school. 

Teaching Controversial Issues in the Nordic Countries

Completed projects

School leaders and teachers from 13 schools in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden will take part in a 3-day training at Utøya as part of the Nordic pilot programme on ‘Teaching Controversial Issues and Managing Controversy in the Nordic countries’, organized by EWC in partnership with the ministries of education in all countries. Participants will work with concrete tools and recommendations on how to engage young people in democratic dialogue about controversial issues through a whole school approach. For the programme, Council of Europe manuals have been translated to the Nordic languages.
