Dear Members, We only have two more weeks left in the Global Consultation on the World Programme for HRE. The remainder of this week we would like to focus the discussion on possible mechanisms for cooperation and coordination of all our efforts. Next week (12-18 July) we would like use to summarise and synthesise the discussion and offer members the possibility to review the draft summaries of each discussion topic. Now that we have shared our views on strategies for introducing HRE in our respective countries and regions, for bringing resources to bear on these efforts and methods of accountability, how can we continue to learn and grow from each others' experiences? What suggestions do you have for communicating and coordinating our efforts at the national, regional and international levels? Some examples of possible ways of REGIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION include: - networking - sharing best practices - exchange of experiences - databases - regional and international initiatives like the 2005 European Year for Democratic Citizenship, International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010), UN Decade on Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014), the UN Millennium Goals, the Education For All movement, among others - UN system, Special Rapporteur on Right to Education, treaty monitoring bodies Examples of possible ways to COORDINATE EFFORTS NATIONALLY are national focal points in the Ministries of Education, national platforms of stakeholders, National Committees for HRE. What has been your experience with such national coordination efforts (under the Decade for HRE for example)? Are they effective? Can they be improved? Is there a success formula that could possible be replicated in other countries? We hope you will continue to share your insights and experiences, which will contribute to the development of the Plan of Action for the World Programme for Human Rights Education. We also encourage you to continue to send messages about the first, second and third topic of this Global Consultation: strategies for introducing HRE into primary and secondary school at the national level; resources and tools that are necessary to accomplish this; and benchmarks for measuring and evaluating progress.
