Light on the Rights Bus Tour, engaging students in defending their rights
The project carried out by OBESSU consists of organising the “Light on the Rights” Bus Tour around Europe to foster the pro-active participation of school students in working for their rights campaigning at national and European level.
In spite of the diversity and variety of educational systems around the continent, secondary school students of Europe have a common stand on one thing: there should be equal rights for all students. The project was developed in the framework of the European Declaration of School Students Rights and the OBESSU campaign “Light on the Rights”. The OBESSU team spent two months touring around 15 different European countries and, together with its national members, organised diverse public activities: workshops, art performances, exhibitions, press conferences, public debates with stakeholders, etc. The “Students’ Rights Light Bulb” was carried around all the countries as a symbol of spreading the spirit of a joint European campaign. Along the way the OBESSU team filmed the activities and produced a documentary that gave a deeper insight into school students’ activism in Europe and shows different ways of improving Europe’s educational realities. The project was supported by the Europe for Citizens programme.
