Human Rights- and DemocracyEducation - in the educational sector.
This series collects various programmes for DemocracyEducation especially for young people. In this process we strive to strengthen the existing commitment of teachers and pedagogues.
The DemocracyEducation takes place through a competence training in the area of the children's and human rights. Creating access to active participation for young people takes place through peer-to-peer educational programs, as well as through art, creative expression and social commitment.
Education for democracy is a central task for schools and youth education - democracy and democratic action can and must be learned. Children and adolescents should experience the advantages, benefits and opportunities of democracy at an early age and recognize that basic democratic values such as freedom, justice, solidarity and tolerance must never be disputed - even in times of profound social change.
