The safeguarding of human rights through international treaties and other legal texts and instruments, is only the beginning of long and difficult, as it turns out, creation of a global culture that truly respects human rights, and in which they are the "common language".It is universally admissible impact that may have on the present and the future of our planet and in our daily life, the creative assimilation by the new generation of basic humanitarian principles. Young people are the most important lever to "consolidate" them in difficult and often "grim" daily local or global reality. Information, awareness raising and mobilization of young people is a "guarantee" to ensure respect for human rights and prevent their violation.Human rights and freedoms are social conquest and can contribute substantially to the development of clear criteria and conditions for the rational and fair exercise of power, to "measure" the man, but also to contribute effectively to the investigation, questioning, critical but and reform.Education through forms of non-formal learning, new human rights, in practice, can be an important tool for awareness-raising and "stop" active citizen act, participate, intervene in contemporary social problems, defends universal human values adds, after all, and that a stone in the edifice of world cultural, social, economic, prosperity and justice. These were key objectives of the program. We used methods of non-formal learning and activities such as, debates and brainstorming, collaboration and simulation games, creating logos, articles, videos to showcase the ideas of young people towards social issues such as respect for the rights and feelings solidarity. .Through the activities of the project participants gained knowledge and deeper understanding of human rights but also attitudes and skills that will help them to defend the rights and freedoms of individuals.
