Invitation to submit examples of good practice (en français)

The Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE/ODIHR), the Council of Europe, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)
jointly invite organisations and institutions from the OSCE area (Europe, Central Asia, North America) to submit examples of good practice for a compendium that is being compiled in order to further efforts in the area of human rights education, including citizenship education and education for mutual respect and understanding.

Submissions are being accepted for the primary and secondary level schooling sectors, including teacher training institutions.

The Compendium is being developed with the assistance of Human Rights Education Associates (HREA).

A good practice denotes a strategy resulting in the successful teaching and learning of human rights values and competencies.

Good practice might be demonstrated through a learning activity, a methodological tool, an audio-visual resource or a documented program design intended for the formal education sector.

The document Examples of areas of good practice contains examples of the kinds of practices envisioned for the Compendium.

Materials selected for inclusion will be distributed widely for public use, both electronically and in hard copy, thus providing high visibility for your good practice.

Organisations with existing copyrights on their materials will retain these rights but will need to provide permission for the translation and dissemination of the materials through the Compendium.

Deadline for submissions: December 01, 2007.
