“Luckily, we received good gestures of support from the European Union and the European Parliament and, although they might seem little ones, they are enough. I am very grateful, particularly to the European Union and the Spanish government, because they were there for me and they took me out of that box I was in, rescuing me from the claws of tyranny in my country. Now, that bridge that I crossed, I do not want to destroy it. I want to make it bigger so that many more can count on this bridge to freedom. And that bridge is the international community.”, Lorent Saleh, 2017 Sakharov Prize Laureate, interviewed by the Global Campus of Human Rights during the Opening of the Venice School of Human Rights - 6 April 2019.

MOOC on Citizenship and Human Rights Education for Change
In recent years, terrorist attacks, radicalisation, extremism and xenophobia have surged across Europe and are posing a threat not only to the safety of its citizens but also to the EU fundamental values. Within this context, the role of education reveals to be crucial so as to promote democratic citizenship and social inclusion in diverse educational contexts and learning environments. A new #MOOC on Citizenship and Human Rights Education for Change is coming soon! #HumanRightsEducation#GCHumanRights
Ces dernières années, les attaques terroristes, la radicalisation violente, l'extrémisme et la xénophobie sont en forte augmentation à travers l'Europe et menacent non seulement la sécurité de ses citoyens mais aussi les valeurs fondamentales de l'UE. Dans ce contexte, le rôle de l'éducation s'avère crucial pour promouvoir la citoyenneté démocratique et l'inclusion sociale dans divers contextes éducatifs et milieux d'apprentissage. A nouveau cours sur L’Éducation à la Citoyenneté et aux Droits de l'Homme pour le Changement bientôt en ligne!
