The overall objective of the Development Education and Raising Awareness (DEAR) project was to contribute to the eradication of poverty and to the promotion of sustainable development through public awareness raising and education approaches and activities that are based on values of human rights, social responsibility, gender equality, and a sense of belonging to one world. It also involved ideas and understandings of the disparities in human living conditions, efforts to overcome such disparities and on participation in democratic actions that influence social, economic, political or environmental situations that affect poverty and sustainable development. AETS’s team supported the European Commission in further developing its strategic DEAR policy, in ensuring the effectiveness and efficiency of DEAR projects and ensuring that the European Commission is recognised as a point of excellence regarding DEAR.
