Dealing with Controversy in the Nordic Countries

The project aimed to strengthen particpants’ competences in creating safe and inclusive spaces for teaching and discussing controversial issues with young people.

Participants included teachers, school leaders, teacher trainers, NGO representatives and university lecturers in Finland, Norway, Sweden, Latvia and Lithuania.  The participants organised their own local trainings reaching more than 1000 secondary beneficiaries.

The main benefit of taking part is the sense of belonging together with others in the region, with common problems that modern democracies face. I feel part of a force which works to strengthen something really important
