Facilitated by Lucy Brookes from the United Kingdom, Alex Müller from Belgium, and Esther Paterson from the United Kingdom, this workshop aims to provide community facilitators and medical and research professionals working with communities with the basics of non-formal education. Organisers expect that after this workshop, participants will: know about the theoretical framework of non-formal education, be able to identify strategies and methods of non-formal education, be able to conceptualise and facilitate a workshop using non-formal education, and know about different approaches to teach human rights. There will also be opportunities to network with other participants.
