COE materials on EDC/HRE

Who is not familiar with the principles of democratic citizenship and human rights? Valuing diversity, including everyone, giving everybody equal chances. They all play a big role in building fair and peaceful societies.

But are these principles actually applied in real life?

It’s up to each and every one of us to make sure that they are. All citizens need to have their say in the decisions which affect themselves and their communities.

What can we all do to make these ideals possible, and above all, how can education be of help?

For all those involved in teaching democratic skills – schools, families, youth associations and individuals – the Council of Europe has a collection of free and easy to use resources.

The children’s brochure Charter for all and the poster “Democracy and Human Rights Start with us!” are available online and as hard copies in a number of languages specified on the website.
