HREA, in collaboration with INTRAC and the Jordan Civil Society Program, conducted a "bootcamp" for human rights trainers in Amman. Twenty trainers from NGOs and other civil society organisation participated in the five-day training of trainers that addressed topics like theory of change, methodology, the human rights framework, curriculum development, and impact assessment.
HREA organises trainings for a range of professionals groups, including human rights defenders, development workers, humanitarian workers, educators, legal professionals, law enforcement officials, social workers, health professionals, and media professionals.
The World As It Could Be - Human Rights Education Program is an outgrowth of a series of successful initiatives carried out since 2006 to educate and inspire youth and adults to further human rights for all people. These initiatives have used the creative arts to deepen learning about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR); they have also given participating youth the voice to teach their peers and adults about the importance of the UDHR concepts.

Certificate of Advanced Studies in Human Rights Education at University of Teacher Education Central Switzerland (Luzern, January-December 2013)
Human rights are the fundament of a peaceful coexistence of a society. But only when women and men know about their human rights, they can claim them for themselves and - in solidarity - for others ("empowerment"). Human rights education is taking place in different contexts (formal, non-formal,...). To close the global gap in further training opportunities in human rights education, in the context of and linked with the new UN Declaration of Human Rights Education and Training adopted by the UN General Assembly in December 2011 and because of the high interest in the "Certificate of Advanced Studies CAS in Human Rights Education", the University of Teacher Education Central Switzerland (PHZ) is running again in 2013 an international advanced qualification, the "Certificate of Advanced Studies CAS in Human Rights Education" starting in January 2013. The CAS Human Rights Education aims to qualify the participants for a role as trainer and multiplier of human rights education for their specific context.
The participants will achieve an internationally recognized Certificate of Advanced Studies PHZ in Human Rights Education.
