9 July to 5 August 2012: Global Education on-line training course “Human Rights Education: Addressing Global Challenges”
The e-course organised by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe, is designed to complement the Global Education Guidelines, a pedagogical tool for educators and policy makers to understand and implement Global Education, and share with a wider audience concepts and approaches promoted by the North-South Centre’s Global Education programme.

The course will provide an introduction to human rights education as part of the Global Education context, and deals with its concepts, approaches, strategies and action, by considering its interconnections between the global and local. It will also explore the ways of addressing the issues in theory and practice, reflecting on the ideal state considering the evidence from the reality, and developing new ways of understanding and promoting human rights education in the contexts of the participants.

The course is addressed at people working in or with human rights education, either as part of international organisations, national educational institutions or those working for national and local civil society organisations. Students with a special interest in the topic are also welcome!

The North South Centre will provide scholarships of 400 euro, corresponding to the course value.
