You(th)Rright! – Human RightsConsciousness forYouth Workers


PROJECT SUMMARY: The main aim of the proposed project is to enhance knowledge and understanding of human rights in order to foster tolerance, respect, solidarity and responsibility of the participating youth workers, so that they in turn can “spread the word”.
A comprehensive education on human rights and on the mechanisms that protect individual but also collective rights, as well as knowledge of the concomitant responsibilities and duties will be provided with the purpose of enabling youth workers & ultimately, young people to promote, defend and apply human rights in daily life. The project will convey fundamental principles, while explaining their interdependence, indivisibility and universality. Emphasis will be given on the benefits of multicultural societies, on European Citizenship and active participation.
