This training programme equips participants to be able to recognise prejudice and discrimination related to religion and belief, and develops individual skills, institutional and collective strategies for creating inclusive intercultural environments.
Brought together by a European partnership of organisations, this training programme addresses the issues of Religious Diversity and Anti-Discrimination, with all partners developing new and fun ways to discuss and explore burning issues and concerns. The training was awarded a European Gold Award.
Issues related to religious diversity and discrimination are becoming increasingly important in European societies. Not only is Europe becoming more diverse in religion and belief, providing a rich opportunity for intercultural understanding, but it is also an undeniable aspect in many modern-day conflicts in intercultural relations.
This programme looks at religious diversity that includes various belief systems and convictions. It equips participants to be able to recognise contemporary manifestations of prejudice and discrimination related to religion and belief, and to develop individual skills and institutional and collective strategies for creating inclusive intercultural environments.
By looking first at religious identity and personal convictions, participants can reflect on their own beliefs, and can come to recognise the wide range of diversity between and within the numerous traditions. Followed by an exchange of views and experiences, participants can increase their cultural awareness and sensitivity to others. Awareness is an important step towards action, so the training strives to develop strategies and motivation for participants’ to be actively involved in the creation of inclusive, diverse societies. This programme is not designed as a form of interfaith dialogue. It is designed in the spirit of anti-prejudice diversity education: to recognise and respect multicultural diversity; diversity of religion and belief; to confront prejudice and discrimination; and to develop intercultural skills.
