Human Rights at School. How to design the best social policies to ensure the prosperity of the state and its citizens.
In a simulation of political decision making, we debated and voted on the best policies in the imaginary state of Dignityland. This edition of Breakwater Talks at School – a discussion format by Amorpha Youth Foundation aimed at young people in their daily learning environment – took place in December 2019 and January 2020 at the Secondary school of Humanities and Arts in Varna, Bulgaria. It was hosted by the Rhetoric classes of Ms Rositsa Todorova with year 12 students. This is a group of students already familiar with Amorpha’s school and community work following last year’s interaction with them in a series of topic part of the school talk format.
We used only materials developed by the Human Rigts Education Youth Programme of the Council of Europe. They were provided to us at a Council of Europe Youth Department training-of-trainers previously attended by one of Amorpha team members.
In an upcoming edition of the talks, we will discuss the topic of human rights with year 11 students.
