The Council of Europe has launched the project “Building a Europe for and with children” to focus on the respect for children’s dignity across Europe: to promote children’s rights and eradicate violence against children. The participation of children is essential in both dimensions.

Compasito has an important role to play in this process. Based on the experiences of the highly acclaimed Human Rights Education Youth Programme of the Council’s youth sector, and the success of “Compass, the manual on human rights education with young people”, Compasito provides children, educators, teachers and parents with activities and methods to introduce children to human rights in creative and attractive ways.

 The manual is just a starting point: Compasito provides directions, but it is up to the children and those working with them to use it, and to use it in the best ways possible. The guide is available in English – French and Russian. Check and Download the manual: http://www.eycb.coe.int/compasito/pdf/Compasito%20EN.pdf
