Educational Music Tools To Promote Human Rights | Project Result

Educational music and human rights


Five partner organisations from the EU have worked together for six years on human rights and music education. They launched this project to address needs they saw in their countries and across Europe.

These needs come from their observations and from scientific and political reports showing that some UN and EU human rights goals are unmet.

Furthermore, with help from musicians and trainers, they created new educational music tools for young people using non-formal methods.

These tools offer a unique way to learn about human rights through music and help youth workers across Europe educate young people on these issues.

The objectives

The project equips in particular youth workers to teach young people about human rights effectively.

The consortium shares these results with youth workers across the EU and in their own countries. The organisations offer long-term support to achieve goals in human rights education, media literacy, critical thinking, active citizenship, and creative expression.

The project also aims to support government and EU efforts in promoting human rights and active citizenship.

To achieve these goals, the project team collaborated with a diverse group, including youth workers, human rights educators, and musicians, who brought a wide range of skills and expertise.

The activities

The main project activities included:

  • 5 Transnational Project Meetings (TPMs) in each partner country
  • The creation of 2 Intellectual Outputs (IOs)
  • 5 Multiplier Events

The TPMs happened in Germany, Italy, Portugal, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

These meetings focused specifically on managing time, content, monitoring and evaluation, budget control, and planning activities.

Content control was also important because each TPM allowed partners to meet in person to discuss project topics, adjust content to local needs, and achieve project goals.

The Multiplier Events took place in each project country and involved teachers, youth workers, social workers, political educators, music educators, and NGO representatives.

The results

The project created two main outputs, targeting different age groups:

  • Young people aged 10-15
  • Young people aged 15-30.

Participants also produced two music albums, each with 10 songs, and two collections of methods for non-formal education (NFE).

These results are available in a booklet and also downloadable online from the project webpage.

  1. Toolbox for Youngsters: This toolkit is designed for children aged 10-15 and focuses on the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
  2. Toolbox for Youth: This toolkit is for young adults aged 15-30 and focuses on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
  3. Project Webpage: All project results can be downloaded from the official webpage
  4. The Booklet: A 134-page booklet printed in 500 copies, which comes with a USB stick containing the methods and music albums.
