We are pleased to announce that Nansen Dialogue Centre Skopje is the implementing partner for Macedonia for the project GEAR (Global Education and Active Response) for protection of human rights, inclusion and democratic values in intercultural societies, developed by CSO GONG from Croatia.
The GEAR Project will enable improvement of existing programs for social inclusion and civic/intercultural education in cooperation between high schools and civil society organisations. Some programs have a long tradition of implementation at national level in particular countries, but those will also be advanced and upgraded at transnational level according to actual requirements. The Project will allow transnational exchange of existing successful practices between partners and teachers from different countries. Activities will include young people, teachers and educators/trainers from civil society organisations.
