In a drive to enhance children’s awareness of their rights, The Rights Hero project, funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ program, recently conducted 3 impactful webinars for 211 teachers in Romania. The initiative addresses the challenges exacerbated by the post-pandemic scenario, aiming to bridge gaps in information about children’s rights and EU policies.
The webinars’ main aim was to familiarise the teachers with the Rights Hero educational game and the educational scenarios which are tackling different children’s rights and fostering discussions around these issues.
