“The experience of the Summer Academy completely changed our perspective on human rights and the role of schools in educating new generations on their rights”, say alumni from Sarajevo in Bosnia Herzegovina
A Russian team from the Summer Academy in Poland has been busy building bridges between academia and schools – by strengthening the position of human rights education and education for democratic citizenship in teacher training.
Summer Academy alumni from the 3rd High School of Egalea used the introduction of a new subject into the Greek high school curriculum as a way of getting democratic citizenship and human rights education on to the agenda at their school.
The European Wergeland Centre (EWC) is a European Resource Centre on Education for Intercultural
Understanding, Human Rights and Democratic Citizenship. EWC’s mission is to build bridges between
policy, research and practice.
