On Friday, the 3rd Compass Forum on Human Rights Education "Learning Equality, Living Dignity", organized by the Council of Europe came to an end.  Over an intense 3 days the forum gathered 120 people from all around Europe and beyond, discussing the shared notion of Human Rights Education and Education for Democratic Citizenship laid in the Charter by the Council of Europe 2009 and tackling the present challenges of implementing human rights education in different countries, on non-govermental and govermental level. Two SCI representatives took part in several workshops focusing on topic of Human Rights Education linked to the area of "War and terrorism", "Crisis of democracy and rising nationalism".
