Your contribution and participation needed to further EDC/HRE

Survey on current state of the COE Charter on EDC/HRE!
Two years ago, the Council of Europe adopted the Charter on education for democratic citizenship and human rights education, marking a turning point for human rights educators and defenders in Europe and beyond. The Charter is an important step forward in mainstreaming human rights education in both formal and non-formal education, and aims to be a real support for both governments and non-governmental partners in making access to EDC/HRE a reality for us all.

Today, the COE Youth department is launching a survey among non-governmental partners (youth organisations, human rights organisations, student associations, parents and teachers associations, etc.) to gather their input on the impact of the Charter in these past years and to have a basis to evaluate the ways to go further.

The survey is open until 15 September 2012 and available in English and French on Youth Department platform:
