The aim of the project is to strengthen the awareness of human rights and the culture of tolerance in the school environment. In order to achieve the aim of the project, educational and creative activities will take place. A study of will be performed on young people’s attitude to tolerance and discrimination in 10 schools and communities of the project. The conclusions of the study will be used to prepare a training programme for promoting the human rights competence in the educational environment. Teachers and students from 10 project schools will acquire the training programme in the cycle of seminars. After the seminars, the training materials will be piloted in the project schools, and teachers of other schools will also be introduced to them. The meetings of culture will take place in project schools, where creative initiatives will bring together people of different cultures and nationalities. The experience of initiatives will be published in the school tolerance calendar, thus contributing to the visibility and sustainability of the project ideas. The project will result in providing the content and methodological support for teachers in teaching the human rights and young people’s awareness of human rights will be raised in schools. The project will promote the intercultural dialogue and understanding of the importance of tolerance in the interaction. The training programme will continue to be used also after the project thus ensuring the long-term impact.
