On 22 May 2024, an important event took place at the G8 Cultural Centre– the presentation of the new Best Practice Guide For Youth Workers. This guide is part of the project ‘For a Better Future: Science and Human Rights Education’ and is available in three languages: Bulgarian, English and Romanian. This project's initiative aims at enriching the knowledge and skills of youth workers in the field of science and human rights, with the support of the Erasmus+ programme (project No 2022-3-RO01-KA210-YOU-00097096) and the efforts of the Values, Virtues, Integrity Foundation, Humanists Malta and ASUR - Asociatia Secular-Umanista din Romania.
The manual is valuable for all those who work with young people because it contains important information and practices in the field of science and human rights. It investigates in details the interrelationship between science and human rights, as well as the ethical dilemmas associated with them. It includes advices and guidance that promotes critical thinking, the development of empathy and social responsibility among young people, with a focus on how science contributes to the development and protection of human rights.
The event attended representatives of various European NGOs, actively involved in youth work. A special guest of the event was the American professor Dr. William Bennet from the American Institute for the Polarities of Democracy, who shared his experience on the topic. During the event, lively discussions were held, expressing enthusiasm and commitment on the part of youth workers. They left with a sense of social responsibility and motivation to spread the topic in their work with young people.
The guide is not only an informative document, but also a practical tool for youth workers, offering concrete methods and approaches to youth work that can be applied in different contexts. In addition to these topics, the guide addresses the growing wave of disinformation and the spread of fake news, providing practical advice on how to avoid this trap.
