Training startsAfter some delays, finally the training we were all long expecting:

Training Course in Egypt: Can Ya Makan . . Human rights

Dates: 14th -20th December 2013

Description of the course:

The aim of the course is to promote human rights education through the use
and adaptation of stories (stories, myths, fables, etc..) As an inseparable
part of the heritage of the Mediterranean region. On the one hand,
participants, educators and artists as active in the world of childhood and adolescence, both in formal and non formal contexts (teachers and youth leaders) will not only increase their understanding of Human Rights and Rights of the Child, but will also develop specific skills of storytelling and the use of voic and language as a tool. On the other hand, during the course the
relationship between stories from different regions of the Mediterranean
area and the values of human rights will be identified, as well as tools for
human rights education and intercultural learning will be created to be used back in participants’ local realities.


The course is aimed primarily at educators active in the world of childhood
and adolescence, both formal and non formal education (teachers and youth
workers), with special emphasis on young educators working with groups at
risk of social inclusion and with fewer opportunities.

A total of 20 participants will take part in the course, coming from the Euromediterranean region,  from the countries of the partner organisations.

Visa cost, accommodation and food are covered 100% for the entire duration
of the training course.

Today is already the last day of the Euromed Youth Awards. Yesterday, AHEAD – Association of Human Rights Educators and ILE presented the two parts of Can ya Makan… Human Rights project.

Initially, it seems it will be hard to get the award (out of 46 of the candidate projectes, more than a third are also training course, therefore “competing” in the same category”). However, everybody was interested in the project and was very highly valued when explained in details. Thus, wheteher award winning or not, the event has been relevant to make the project well-know.

This afternoon the awarding will take place.

Good luck!

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.
