One World in Schools (OWIS)
is one of the educational programmes of the organization People in Need. Since 2001 OWIS endeavours to help responsible young people approach information in an open and critical manner.
OWIS provides teachers with audio-visual lessons, ie. documentary films and methodological materials available online at JSNS.CZ, bringing important topics and specific stories into schools. The OWIS learning materials respond to the situation in society as well as current challenges, individual lessons cover topics such as human rights, development issues, the environment, media literacy, modern history or civic engagement. Emphasis is placed on the practical applicability of the materials, everything is hence produced in cooperation with teachers. Teachers and pupils in more than 3,600 Czech primary and secondary schools work with OWIS materials.

Os Filhos de Lumière
Os Filhos de Lumière was created by a group of filmmakers as a project aimed at raising awareness to cinema among children and youngsters. Since its creation, it develops a solid intervention in the field of film education, realizing workshops gathering filmmakers, teachers, children and youngsters, schools and cultural spaces, giving access to film culture of all times and styles - generating a basis for reflection and meeting with films and community. Our methodology combines observation and reflection on what is the substance and the language of cinema and the practical experimentation, with the guidance of filmmakers and film technicians. The teamwork, the responsibility, the process of sharing with others is part of the contact process with the films. The screenings, film cycles and meetings interconnect with the workshops allowing the common reflection on the cinema, the world, and the work that was done.
