Human Rights Education

Training Course on Human Rights Education
Malta, 26-29 May 2015
“Human Rights Education”

25 young participants, most of them educators, took part in this first training course funded by the Council of Europe and organised by Agenzija Zghazagh on the topic of Human Rights Education. The seminar was held at Villa Psaigon – Dingli by trainers Louis Debono and Joe Teuma and consisted of a number of sessions and workshops that aimed to create a culture of Human Rights in which young people and those working with them became more aware of their rights and the rights of others, and more prepared to advocate for them in their respective environments and within society.

To achieve this, the facilitators trained the participants to use human rights education methods in a creative and interactive way within their organisations. Other sessions were dedicated to create awareness of HR issues in Maltese society, and the organisations who deal with them, to train the participants in the use of Compass as a tool and methodology for human rights education in dealing with the needs of the young people they work with and to support the diverse organisations who were invited to conduct workshops so as to start a network of practitioners of Human Rights Education. 

The main outcomes of this training course were the increased knowledge of the participants of the institutional and legal structures that can be used to support human rights education and work against human rights violations, together with knowledge of the methodologies of Compass and how they can be creatively adapted.
