Human Rights Education Program

“Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.” 14th Dalai Lama

The Human Rights Education Program is designed to introduce international human rights and responsibilities to students, young people. It uses the framework of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child to help students understand and appreciate common human values, encourages them to apply international standards to their own lives, and supports positive student action to remedy human rights violations in their own communities. Civic Engagement Movement is extremely committed to the Human Rights Education, we work with teachers, community volunteers, and students in different schools of Tîrgu-Mureș/Marosvásárhely and its surroundings. We promote and develop the practice of human rights education in primary and secondary learning environments, through training, direction and support of teachers, adult volunteers and emerging student activists. We also create, pilot, and disseminate curricular resources for use in human rights education.

The Program is run entirely on a voluntary basis.
