This is just a short post, as short as my visit to Brussels in May. I went to Brussels for a meeting with Religions for Peace - European Women of Faith, where I introduced Learning to Live Together, an Intercultural and Interfaith Program for Ethics Education manual on behalf of the Global Network of Religions for Children, GNRC in Europe. The manual was developed by Arigatou International in close cooperation with UNESCO and UNICEF.
The GNRC Youth group in Belgium is interested to develop a closer relationship with Religions for Peace in Belgium and one of the common areas they envision they could work on is intercultural and interfaith education for children and youth. Therefore, the Learning to Live Together manual is a very important tool and framework for educational activities that promote understanding and respect of oneself and others, and empower children and young people to work together to transform situations of discrimination and violation of human rights in their societies.
