“Educational Music tools to promote Human Rights among Young People” is an international project that responds to the need to develop methods and tools that will increase the quality of human rights education in the youth sector which is using the non-formal education (NFE) in everyday work.
The partners involved in the project are Roter Baum Berlin (Berlin, Germany), Narandžasti (Pančevo, Serbia), Farra Fanfarra (Sintra, Portugal), Comala (Torino, Italy), Zdravo da Ste (Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina)
This partner network has been working together successfully for 6 years in the context of the youth exchange series “Music for Human Rights”. What has been noticed by the project partners is that there is a lack of human rights education in Europe. It entails the lack of capacity for meaningful political participation of youth based on HRs values and principles. This affects the power of young people to influence the process of decision-making and community growth.
With the help of the young musicians and trainers of HRs Education, we have developed in 2 years an innovative methodological toolkit that enables youth workers all over Europe to work with young people on human rights education topics in an exemplary way. In the section of this website called “Wanna play?”, you will find two toolboxes with non-formal methods addressed to youth and youngsters, accompanied by songs about human rights. With these two toolboxes, you will be able to analyse, reflect and discuss the songs about human rights in group work.
The aim is to give young people the opportunity to learn about human rights through a truly amazing tool: music. We comprehensively used music, both sound and lyrics. The lyrics show concrete examples from which the young people can generalise together with the youth workers, highlighting the importance of human rights in their lives and how fundamental it is for social coexistence. The songs, which deal not only with topics about relationships but also with social issues, are meant to be stylistically attractive for young people and methodically prepared for work with groups.
