Václav Havel, a Czech president, writer and dissident, was one of the leading dissidents and human rights activists of the second part of the 20th century. The aim of this e-learning course is to bring the ideas and work of Václav Havel on human rights, civil society and civic responsibility to young people. The objective of the course is not only to reflect on the life of a specific historical figure, but also to raise awareness of the need to constantly fight for freedom and human rights whatever the era. A series of six short video lessons combine spoken word of young presenters and special guests with archival materials. The lessons are shot with a dynamic YouTube-like editing style to attract the attention of the young generation.
