The e-learning platform on “Child Protection and Development: Non-formal learning and Open Educational Resources”
The e-learning platform on “Child Protection and Development” is the result of a collaboration between organizations and youth leaders from Italy, Senegal, Kenya, India, Peru, Spain and Greece in the frame of the project “Child Protection and Development: Youth Work Experiences across the World” co-funded with the support of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, Key Action 2 Capacity building in the field of youth.
The e-learning platform aims is intended as an open learning resource for youth workers, educators, trainers, facilitators, young leaders, social workers, intercultural mediators, project managers and experts to be put into practice in their daily work with and for children. The platform could also be used in formal settings such as schools, colleges and universities addressing development challenges addressing children rights.
