Centre Eight Participates in the Successful ARiSE Training Program in Nicosia, Cyprus

NICOSIA, Cyprus, 26th May, 2023 — Centre Eight, a leading research and training organisation, is proud to announce its active participation in the ARiSE: The Right(s) School training program. This training program is part of the KA2 Erasmus+ Project, co-funded by the European Commission, and was held in Nicosia, Cyprus, from 23rd to 25th May 2023.

ARiSE is a trailblazing educational initiative aimed at advancing the Rights of children in educational systems. It provides a platform for school teachers to enhance their knowledge, skills, and capacity, thereby ensuring the respect, protection, and fulfilment of children’s rights.

“Our primary aim is to consider Children’s Rights as an integral part of Human Rights,” shares the ARiSE project coordinator. “Through collaborative efforts, including those with Centre Eight, we strive to create safe environments for all children and address the needs of diverse children groups.”

Throughout the program, participants engaged with the innovative ARiSE curriculum, focusing on understanding and identifying factors and risks of vulnerability in children. Alongside academic enrichment, the program offered a cultural immersion experience, imparting insights into Cypriot history, customs, traditions, and gastronomy.

Encouraged by the success of the Nicosia training program, the ARiSE project team is eagerly preparing for the upcoming meeting in Velenje, Slovenia, scheduled for 13th and 14th December 2023.

All resources from the Nicosia training will soon be available on the project’s website:
