Brief description

The Compass portal brings together various educational and training resources developed by the Directorate of Youth and Sport in Human Rights Education with a special focus on young people.

The Council of Europe initiated its Human Rights Education Youth Programme in 2000 in order to bring human rights into the mainstream of youth work. The Programme has constituted a modest - but firm - attempt to make HRE accessible and attractive to those youth workers, youth leaders, trainers and young people who work with other young people, mostly in non-formal education. The programme aspires to bring human rights and HRE, defined as the promotion of equality in human dignity, closer to the reality of young people.

The availability of accessible, ready-to-use and adaptable educational methods and activities has been identified by the youth partners of the programme as one of the keys to its success.
The portal and the activities it contains have been designed to serve the wider community of all those engaging in HRE in formal and non-formal education, both in explicit and implicit ways. It is designed also as a platform for exchanging experiences and providing feedback to others. We hope you will find it useful and send us your feedback and suggestions, notably through evaluations and sharing your experiences under the 'tips from users'.

Main achievements
The four educational manuals allow users to take full advantage of the possibilities offered by information technology today, namely allowing for links to be created across chapters, activities and the different tools, and making it easy to search for further information and resources on the Internet.

"Alien '93" was the very first resource book on combating racism and xenophobia, published by the Directorate of Youth and Sport.

"All different – all Equal” Education Pack, is a manual that provides youth workers, trainers and group leaders with ideas, resources, methods and activities for informal intercultural education with young people.

DOmino is a practical manual on how to use peer-group education as a means of fighting racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and intolerance.

COMPASS, the manual on HRE with young people, has been designed as the main tool for Human Rights Education. COMPASS indicates and suggests different ways and directions for HRE in formal and non-formal educational settings.
