At the end of last year we delivered Wales’ part of an exciting European-wide pilot project, Citizen Rights, to find new ways to work together for citizenship and human rights.
5 schools from across Wales received fully funded in-depth workshops for learners on rights protection in Europe, and learners shared their ideas and worked with project participants in the 10 other countries taking part in the project whilst developing critical thinking, teamwork and creativity skills.
Learners learned about European Citizenship and real life case studies before focusing on taking action on a choice of topics; Migration, LGBTQI rights, Digital privacy, Roma rights, Labour and social rights. They shared what they had learned via the project’s online portal with the other participating learners in a creative way – by video, comic, podcast, article or any other method.
