Mental depreciation of young people is a long-standing problem. The social transformation connected to globalization and multiculturalism and the pressure what the transformation generates is one of the challenges in our days. Only few groups are living together with real relationship. Prejudice is the consequence of people not knowing each other and inherently they fear each other. Thw foundation has dealt with human rights education since 2008. It is hard to bring human rights training programs to the schools, because of the compulsory curriculum, there is no time for extra programs not directly connected. Also, their implementation requires specific preparedness from the teachers and only a few continuation courses are available, the reputation of materialized educational programs made by non-governmental organization are low and there are only few proven cooperations. Therefore the project aimed at devising adaptable educational programs for the national curriculum fitted to the syllabus, to try these in different schools and in groups with different ages; at promoting human rights educational programs in the education sector; at identifying refresher courses for teachers; at establishing training books; at creating a common platform for all those organizations in Pécs who are active in human rights education with cooperation, common programs and publications; at promoting the idea of human rights and disseminaiing the results of the project. The primary target audience were the teachers from Pécs and around Pécs. They multiply the results and they use syllabuses. Their successful invocation means that the project will have long-term influence, that they will follow through procedures and collaborate with NGOs. The participants of the pilot procedures were more than 200 students from Pécs, they were the practical „quality controllers”, they helped the testing with their evaluations.
