At Helsinki España we firmly believe that human rights education and training are vitally important strategies for the promotion, protection and effective realization of these rights. We believe that young people, as essential members of our societies, share the responsibility to ensure that respect for human rights is a reality in every community and our society as a whole. This is why we focus on developing projects of human rights education aimed at empowering young people to exercise their rights and duties.
Human Rights Education provides young people not only with knowledge and skills but develops their attitudes and behaviors so that they can enjoy their rights and defend the rights of others. Our projects help students acquire the knowledge of the instruments and mechanisms of protection of human rights and the acquisition of skills to apply them. We use participatory and stimulating teaching methods that encourage critical analysis..
Helsinki Spain also promotes volunteering as a key tool for the promotion, protection and realization of human rights. We work on the basis that volunteering not only creates opportunities for social participation, but it also strengthens trust, solidarity and reciprocity among people.
Helsinki España is convinced that life without war is a prerequisite and a precondition for the effective realization of human rights and fundamental freedoms. Helsinki España is committed to the right of peoples to peace and therefore we offer our best resources to contribute to international peace and security.
We use training to raise awareness of global problems that threaten international peace and security as well as the mechanisms of the international community to prevent, respond and resolve conflicts. With our training courses, we empower young professionals to be part of the efforts of the international community in maintaining peace and security in the world.
