Eskura, the Human Rights Educational Resources Centre, founded by Donostia / San Sebastian City Council, the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa and the Basque Government, has the mission to achieve informed societies where we all have the opportunity to understand and exercise our rights, and to know when they are being infringed. The main aim is to provide us with tools that enable us to make conscientious decisions in the future with a view to fostering peaceful coexistence.
One of the strategies for achieving this goal is the sharing of educational materials based on a different theme every year. This year’s theme will be Educational resources in memory for coexistence.
This year’s objective is therefore to contribute to a shared and extensive memory both of the conflicts caused by political violence and of the conflicts and discriminations rendered invisible by these. Educational resources will be presented based on pedagogy of the memory, including focus on the infringement of all human rights during conflicts, thus contributing to the right to truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence. The subjects will be addressed from an educational point of view for the general public, key agents and education professionals.
