What is Humanitas' vision?
Humanitas is a medium size non-governmental and non-profit organisation, founded in the year 2000. Its mission is to raise awareness of global interdependencies, to promote social inclusion and global responsibility, and to encourage change of attitudes towards global issues such as development, north-south perspectives, poverty, migration, over-consumption, environmental sustainability etc. Humanitas carries out various activities that are thematically and methodologically related to the concept of Global Education (GE). It is a leading organization in Slovenia working in the field of GE.
We are pleased to announce that the Erasmus+ project « Training Theatre in Global Education » of our members Humanitas (SI) and Fórum Társulat (HU) was approved by the Slovenian national agency! This project will combine global education and forum theater using EPTO’s anti-discrimination methods (« A WORLD OF DIFFERENCETM » programme) and peer training approach.
As a membership-based organisation, EPTO runs every year an annual event for its member organisations in order to regularly meet, assess their needs and capacities, and support them with tailored services. In a context of rising extremism worldwide and in the aftermath of the horrifying terror attacks that are taking place notably in Europe, thanks to the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe, EPTO launched the third edition of this event in Berlin (8-9/04/2017) to open the floor to youth workers and practitioners to address how the issue of extremism could be better tackled through peer education.
From March 29th to 31st in Luxembourg took place the second working group meeting of “Bouge et décroche ton job”, a 4-year Erasmus + project which associates a unique network of French, Belgian, Luxembourgish and Italian partners in the fields of formal and non formal education, vocational training, companies and public authorities to foster the socio-professional insertion of young people who dropped out of school.
