HUMAN education

For educators

Since 1948, the UN human rights have formed an important basis for peaceful and respectful coexistence of people worldwide - and yet they have not been realised.
Thus, it is also important in the pedagogical context to focus more on human rights education.
Therefore, we have compiled some HUMAN materials here and also references to institutions that can provide support.

Script - HUMAN and the COMPASS Handbook

In this script you will find a short description of each of the 13 HUMAN themes with suggestions for implementation in school and non-school educational work as well as references to the exercises and texts in the "COMPASS Handbook on Human Rights Education" of the German Institute for Human Rights Education. 
Eine Leseprobe des Skripts kannst du here. We will be happy to send you the complete german script on request, free of charge. But please note, that there is no English version of the script available, yet.
