Our aim in Norway is to help transfer democratic values and principles into practice in schools and local communities. Through workshops, teacher training, and learning materials we aim to support students and young people to use their voice and participate in democracy.
Our main initiative in Norway is the national learning program ‘22 July and Democratic Citizenship’ which is connected to the two sites of the terrorist attacks 22 July 2011 – Utøya and the government quarter in Oslo.
Today, we cooperate with the learning center at Utøya and the 22 July Center in Oslo with the aim of strengthening young people’s democratic resilience
EWC is one of seven Peace and Human Rights Centers in Norway that join forces to promote democratic values and attitudes, particularly towards children and young people.
