Call for Participants: Forum on Citizenship and Human Rights Education – Turin


The Forum on Human Rights and Citizenship Education will bring together up to 300 participants (offline and online) who are involved in HRE/EDC with young people and children in different settings – NGOs, education authorities, formal education, human rights institutions, youth organizations and networks. Prior to the Forum the Council of Europe will carry out a review of the implementation of the Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education (EDC/HRE), which will be presented and discussed during the event. By looking at the present and future of citizenship and human rights education in Europe, the forum aims at strengthening the quality, recognition, sustainability and outreach of EDC/HRE.

This forum is co-organised by the Council of Europe (Education and the Youth sectors) and the Department for Youth Policy and the Universal Civic Service of the Italian government, in cooperation with Amnesty International (European Office and Italian section), the City of Turin, the National Youth Council of Italy and the European Youth Forum. The activity is organised within the Italian Presidency in the Council of Europe, which made youth policy one of its strategic priorities.
