The aims of this second meeting with students were finding ways to respond to the educational challenges of an increasingly multicultural and multi religious Europe and how that can support the development of the societies we live in. In this project countries we are having different models of religious education catholic, orthodox, muslim, protestant and for many religions do not play a role in their lives. Some of the partner schools teach religion others don’t have religion lessons. Speaking and eaching about religion supports the development of social, civic and intercultural competences, educating towards a constructive and critical understanding of cultural and religious differences.
