‘’ARiSE: The Right(s) School’’ is a transnational ERASMUS+ project which primarily attempts to bring Human Rights Education (HRE) to the field of school education in order to improve the existing competences of teachers and equip them with valuable educational tools, which will benefit a broad range of students. the project ARiSE: The Right(s) School was developed to identify the key challenges that educational systems face in areas associated with the Rights of children, to increase the knowledge, skills and capacity of primary and secondary school teachers to ensure that children’s rights are respected, protected and fulfilled and that children are able to participate in decisions affecting them at school level. More specifically, it is estimated that the interactive educational material that will be developed in the framework of the project will equip teachers with valuable knowledge and skills to better understand, protect and promote children’s rights inside and outside the school framework. The acquisition of such skills and knowledge among the population of teachers will also include the ability to utilise new and innovative digital skills and work with other educators in contemporary online settings. What is more, it is expected that the teachers who are going to take part in the project or benefit from it indirectly will be able to secure and promote the respect of the rights of children who belong to vulnerable population groups, such as migrants and refugees. In this way, they will facilitate those children’s integration in the school setting and in all fields of everyday life.
