Internationa Human Rights Day

On December, 10 is the Internationa Human Rights Day since 1950. This year’s slogan is "Human Rights 365" It encompasses the idea that every day is Human Rights Day.

And for this reason the Center for Development of Education, Batory Fundation and Society for Education against Discrimination 've organised on December, 10 (2014) conference "School without discrimination - safe school".

I presented there the tool of teaching about realtions between minority and majority on example of Jews and Romas within the Open Space.

Teaching human rights and history

Combining human rights and history education can be very useful. One of the common values for both fields is the change. If you analyse history you look mostly for the change and dealing with human rights aimes mostly at bringing change into life.

The Change is also a title of a book wich is being prepared by an international team of scientists in collaboration with practitioners of history education and human rights education. I will upload it here, when it will be finished (at the end of 2015 or at the beginning of 2016)

German-Belorussian-Lithuanian relationships

Looking for ideas of scientific excursions? I recommend you to go to Lithuania. I took part on the excursion for German, Lithuanian and Belorussian students „Lithuania During a Period of The Two World Wars“ (05.10.2014 – 17.05.2014, Vilnius and Kaunas, Lithuania), organised in cooperation with the Vilnius University and European Humanities University.

Here you can  get to know our seminar's programme, so you can organise it for you and your group.
