Dvv International in cooperation with the NGO - KEC (Kosovo Education Center),organized a three-day training “Education for Active Citizenship and Human Rights”. The purpose of this training was Capacity Building of Young People and Teachers from Social Subjects and Familiarity with the Concepts of Active Citizenship and Human Rights. Participants in the training, were selected through an open call published on the official communication channels of KEC and social networks. The training was organized in several sessions and the participants were introduced and talked about their work and the experience they will bring to the training. In addition, a short film was screened during this session to boost the debate on respect for human rights and anti-discrimination principles.
In sessions, the training covered the following key topics:
Understanding active citizenship;
Cultural prejudice and stereotypes;
Activating active citizenship;
The role of civil society organizations (CSOs) in promoting active citizenship and human rights;
All these sessions were provided through various tasks and group work. To ensure further dissemination of knowledge, skills, and abilities, the final training session focused more on preparing future individual plans, where all participants planned specific tasks to complete in their workplace and where they conduct their daily activity. All participants filled in the training evaluation questionnaire at the end of the training. Findings of the evaluations and impressions during the reflective session show that 95% of the participants evaluated these trainings with the maximum grade, therefore we can conclude that the training had a great effect on improving their knowledge on active citizenship and human rights.
