Learning to live together: Design, monitoring and evaluation of education for life skills, citizenship, peace and human rights

Learning to Live Together: Design, Monitoring and Evaluation of Education for Life Skills, Citizenship, Peace and Human Rights (2008). The present Guide focuses on the theme of ‘learning to live together’, which is one of four competencies identified as important by the International Commission on Education for the Twenty-first Century chaired by Jacques Delors.

This theme is important to educators because:

  • Learning to live appropriately with others is important in our everyday lives – from life in the school, family and community to the special problems of adolescent relationships.
  • Learning to live together in the wider society requires awareness of and respect for human rights and the responsibilities of local, national and global citizenship.
  • Learning to live together as responsible citizens can help reduce tensions due to ethnic or other divisions and social disparities which contribute to the instability or civil conflict seen in many nations today.
