Learning Democracy at Utøya offers trainings and workshops for students, young people and youth leaders connected to the learning centre at Utøya.
Students and young people directly trained
Participants from 28 countries
Students and young people trained by their peers
The main component is our Norwegian project, targeting students from 9th and 10th grade at Norwegian Lower Secondary schools. Student groups accompanied by a teacher participate in a three-day learning program at Utøya. At the end of the program, students have increased knowledge, confidence and commitment to act as multipliers with their peers – passing on knowledge about the terror attacks 22 July 2011 and promoting a democratic culture in schools and local communities. Together with Utøya, the EWC also offers democracy workshops for youth active in Norwegian civil society.
Every year, we also organise international trainings. Read more about it below:
