Tolerance Education Project
The goal of this project was to increase high-school students education in the field of human rights, especially anti-racism. To achieve this goal a 45 minutes long workshop for 15 participants was held. Between the participants there were students from different minorities.
The workshop was held:
Materials and resources:
For the Workshop we used the Football for Development Handbook, 2011 ( www.footballfordevelopment.net) and SPIN – European Sport Inclusion Network publications.
The participants were 14 years old, Hungarian high-school students. Some of them were from the Roma minority living in Hungary.
First wee screened a 25 minutes long presentation about human rights, children’s rights and racism. The presentation was made by the Mahatma Gandhi Human Rights Organization.
After the screening we managed a workshop, where we asked different questions from the students ( For example: What is racism?, What do you know about racism?, What do you think about racism? Have you ever met racism in your life?, Do you know, what is a connection between human rights and sport?, Have you ever met racism in sport or during football matches? Why is it important to educate girls?, What do you know about children’s rights? etc.). During the workshop we tried to target all the participants and to establish constructive dialogs.
Students understood the importance of human rights, children’s rights and the importance of equality in education and in sports.
All participants were happy about the workshop and they reported positive feedback. Schools are the second home for children and this school should be an incredible example for other schools. The ideology and the atmosphere of this school have a great influence on children’s behaviour and understanding.
