Project description
According to the Educational Research Institute, about 10 per cent of Polish pupils are regularly subjected to bullying; verbal violence among young people is widespread. Only integrated activities of the Ministry of Education, the management staff in schools, teachers, parents and local communities can bring expected results – schools that are free of discrimination and safe.
The aim of the project implementation was sensitising students of secondary education to the issue of discrimination and mobilizing them to undertake activities aiming to combat discrimination in local and Internet communities.
Thanks to the project implementation, 615 young people were prepared to conduct activities aiming to combat discrimination in 131 secondary schools throughout Poland. 121 social leaders learned how to recognize violations of human rights and how to design activities aiming to counteract unequal treatment.
Scenarios for workshops on counteracting discrimination and hate speech were developed and training for teachers, social leaders, bloggers and vloggers was conducted. The young participants developed and implemented 109 projects in their school communities. Young people aged 13-19 from various schools all over Poland benefited from the project implementation.
The Association cooperated with the AI Norway - International Centre of Human Rights Education. The partner provided expertise and support in teaching of human rights, particularly preparing workshop scenarios and evaluation.
