Action Area II

For all children and young people education institutions are important arenas to learn and practice the principles of democracy and human rights such as inclusiveness, equality and respect.




Higher education, teacher training institutions and NGOs

The pandemic worsened existing inequalities, making it more difficult to ensure an inclusive and quality learning environment for all. As schools and universities digitalized more of their teaching, many vulnerable groups risked being excluded due to limited access to devices and internet, as well as lack of skills to use technology for learning.

In order to provide quality education for all students, home school cooperation is key. Alliances between schools, parents and the local community are helping to provide learning for all students. This is why we at the EWC promote the Whole School Approach!
