Human Rights Education

Through human rights education we can empower the next generation to develop the skills and attitudes that promote equality, dignity and respect in your community, society and worldwide.

Rights Sparks is our free continual professional development for primary school teachers. Our workshops introduce teachers to a range of human rights education (HRE) and development education (DE)  methodologies and resources, which can be integrated across the curriculum and encourage the development of skills including literacy and working with others. Incorporating human rights education into the classroom encourages communication, conflict resolution and empathy to create a positive school atmosphere. All Rights Sparks workshops are free and can be held for groups of 5 teachers or more. To find out about workshops for your school or local education centre, please email hre@amnesty.ie.
