The “Living Library” is a non formal education tool, an innovative, simple and concrete method to promote dialogue, reduce prejudices, break stereotypes and improve understanding between people of different ages, genders, lifestyles and cultural backgrounds. This event will be open to the public, with 8 “books” (the books are human) and a catalog of “titles” (stories) by senior learners and some Italian “books” (beneficiaries of the host organization or other age groups) and will promote respect for human rights as well as encourage intercultural and intergenerational dialogue.

This is the planned final activity of the training cycle and Erasmus+ project “Tempo dos Direitos”(“Right’s Time”).
