A network of higher education providers engages in collaboration relating to teacher training.

Other key parties, such as experts at NGOs (e.g. Unicef, Kepa), institutions of higher education and government agencies, are also consulted. The project steering group includes the funders: the Human Rights Centre, the Ministry of Justice and the University of Helsinki. Project's central co-operation networks are also connected to UNESCO Chair Values, Dialogue and Human Rights.

The project is connected to the DINO and DINO II coordination project of the Ministry of Justice for the development of education for democratic citizenship and human rights education as well as the involvement of young people. Project had co-operation in 2018-2019 with Toimintaa ja kohtaamisia project (engl. Action and encounters -project) of the Ministry of Education and Culture for the development of involvement and a human rights-based approach in vocational teacher education.
