Young people’s access to rights through youth information and counselling (2015)
“Information is not knowledge”, said Albert Einstein.
With this in mind, the Council of Europe and the European Youth Information and Counselling Agency (ERYICA) designed this toolkit on how to inform young people about their human rights in an appealing way, and give them practical experience to use them. At the end of the publication there is a summary of the most relevant and useful online resources, and an overview of good practice.
This toolkit on access of young people to their rights is first and foremost intended to assist youth information experts working directly with young people, but it can also be used in other non-formal activities. The toolkit offers many sources of information and inspiration on how to inform young people about their rights, in an attractive way. This publication offers you a summary of the most relevant and useful material available in the online world.
