7 Jan. Intercultural education through religious studies: IERS project kick‐off meeting

Starting today, the Dipartimento di studi sull’Asia e sull’Africa Mediterranea of the Università Ca’ Foscari hosts a three‐day meeting (January 7-9, 2014) to work with the European project partners in presence in Venice for launching the IERS project activities.

During the meeting the transnational teams and the working methods will be defined in order to approach the first main issues:

  • to provide an analysis of the state of the art of both National and European approaches regarding religious education and their relations with religious studies in European educational systems;
  • to select several topics covering crosscutting issues of different religions to be developed in digital modules for learning purposes.

Participants from the Institut Européen en Sciences des Religions, the University of Salamanca, the University of Augsburg, Oxfam Italia Intercultura, and University of Southern Denmark are attending the event.
