Press cartoons and fundamental freedoms: a new offer of support for education professionals

Thanks to the support of the 11 January Fund, Cartooning for Peace, in association with the International Institute for Human Rights and Peace and the Léo Lagrange Federation, are pleased to announce the launch of the “Press cartoons and fundamental freedoms” website.

 

Discover the website: https://pedagogie-dessinsdepresse.fr/

 

This platform, which can be accessed by registration, offers support and training in pedagogy through press cartoons and the discovery of human rights, aimed at education professionals (teachers and extracurricular workers). Any education professional can register for initial training sessions and/or exchanges of best practices, aimed at providing keys to building a project or a teaching sequence around press cartoons and human rights. The site also gives access to a set of concrete resources to address these themes with young people and make them want to get involved: theoretical references, activity proposals, immersive activities and teaching tools on human rights, freedom of expression, analysis of a press cartoon, or stereotypes and representations.

 

This online publication is the result of the project “Pedagogy through press cartoons and fundamental freedoms”, supported by the 11 January Fund. For one year, the three partners have set up experimental meetings, combining professionals and young people from the school and out-of-school environment, in order to gather their needs and create adapted support as well as digital tools reinforcing the legal knowledge of education professionals and making them aware of the pedagogy through press cartoons and the profession of press cartoonist. This co-construction aimed to promote the learning and sharing of republican values, with particular attention given to freedom of expression, freedom of the press, as well as the understanding of secularism.

 

A first initial training session will take place by videoconference on Monday afternoon, 21 November 2022 (press cartoon pedagogy module) and on Wednesday afternoon, 23 November 2022 (human rights module).

Two exchanges of good practices, intended for professionals who have already worked on the themes of press cartoons and/or human rights, are organised (face-to-face) in Paris on Friday 25 November 2022, and in Nancy on Friday 15 December 2022, subject to availability.

You can register online directly on the “Press cartoons and fundamental freedoms” website.
