Dear friends, We are pleased to announce that COMPASS, a manual on human rights education with young people, is now available on-line at http://www.coe.int/compass COMPASS has been produced by the Directorate of Youth and Sport of the Council of Europe to provide youth leaders, teachers, trainers and facilitators in the formal and non-formal education sectors with hands-on and ready to use interactive methods and background information in human rights and human rights education. COMPASS is central to the Human Rights Education Youth Programme, implemented by the Directorate of Youth and Sport to bring human rights education into the mainstream of youth work practice (http://www.coe.int/hre). The on-line version of COMPASS is based on full interactivity between different sections of the manual as well as interactivity with the users. The readers of COMPASS on-line can send their evaluations of the activities, but also suggest new links, tips for other users, etc. The site is currently only in English, but it is expected that the French and Russian versions of Compass will be linked to it in 2004. The printed version of COMPASS is still available in English, French and Russian at the Council of Europe Publishing (http://www.book.coe.int). The success and usefulness of the manual is in bringing human right education closer to the national and local levels is proven be the number of translations being prepared. National partners of the Council of Europe are active in translating it in Bosnian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Dutch, Georgian, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Macedonian, Polish, Romanian, Slovenian and Spanish. The Council of Europe will also soon publish an Arabic version.
