Within the framework of the PAULA Program of Education for Peace, the UB Solidarity Foundation and the Institute for Professional Development ICE UB develop projects to support high schools in the development of research papers aimed to educate in human rights and citizenship on a global scale.
These projects highlight the ethical implications of research as well as the fundamental role of scientific knowledge for human rights and sustainable development on a global scale.
Activities included for:
- Research workshops aimed at understanding the rigorous methods and criteria that make scientific knowledge possible and at assessing the contribution of research to human rights and global sustainability.
- Advice, complementary to the research tutorial class, which offers a personalized guidance for those students interested in focusing their research topic from a perspective of human rights and global sustainable development.
- FACULTY: Training meetings with changing duration and formats aimed to provide practical resources for the tutorial classes and evaluation of baccalaureate work with a stress on education in human rights and global citizenship.
- BARCELONA CITY: Research Project for the Global Citizenship, with the support of the Direcció de Justícia Global i Cooperació Internacional of the City Council of Barcelona
- PROVINCE OF BARCELONA: Interdependent, co-responsible project: 2030 Agenda as a resource for the Baccalaureate research, with the support of the Provincial Government of Barcelona. Within the framework of this project, an interactive version of the “Human Rights World Map” has been published. This is an educational resource that presents, in the form of a huge comic, the interdependence of apparently distant problems and, therefore, the co-responsibility of all the people who inhabit the planet in its resolution.
In addition to these two active projects, other initiatives in support of the centres have previously been carried out for the implementation of projects and activities of education in human rights and global citizenship.
