Our Projects

We are currently conducting several projects on increasing equity, equality, inclusion, and anti-racism in schools and non-formal educational settings. Annually, we implement teachers in-service training projects nationally reaching in total several thousand teachers every year.

In Helsinki municipality, we are currently organizing a set of more than 150 anti-racism workshops for early childhood education and pre-school staff membersteachers, and school principals. We have trained more than 2,000 teachers and youth workers on participatory equality planning in 2015–2020.  

One of our new approaches to peace education is to use documentary films to create creative spaces for transformative learning moments where sensitive and difficult issues can be tackled together. Yearly, we publish various toolkits, manuals, and training materials for teachers and youth workers, most of them are outcomes from international projects. Our international work is mainly funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. See below some of our current and recent international projects.
