youth and students
I have just successfully finished a meeting. It was the longest title that I have ever seen for a meeting. It was called “Ad hoc committee of experts for a possible framework convention on Human Rights Education (HRE) and Education for Democratic Citizenship (EDC)” There you go, a real tongue twister. It was organised by the directorate of Education and after working for quite a while now in the youth sector it was amazing to see how far education and youth are from each other. Not being aware of processes and developments in the respective other work area. Though the people talked about are the same, as still the vast majority of people being in education are young people. It almost seemed as we are talking about 2 different kinds of citizens at times, students and youth.
