Let’s tell our stories – The positive impact of religion in education (Klingenthal 2021)

St Giles’ Centre staff are looking forward to participating in a special Europe-wide, online interactive event on 21 October 2021 (1-5pm BST).

The Intereuropean Commission on Church and School (ICCS) and the Coordinating Group for Religion in Education in Europe (CoGREE) have created an exciting programme on the theme: ‘Let’s tell our stories – the positive impact of religion in education’.

The event is described as an opportunity to: “identify arguments and narratives, which can demonstrate why religion in education matters. We will learn about communication strategies, the power of storytelling and about how to wrap the identified arguments in an appealing story.”

Dr Werner Hausmann (University Erlangen-Nürnberg) will be presenting on ‘Public religious education’ and Lena Ohm (coach and journalist) on ‘Storytelling – a framework’. Practical engagements through workshops then follow.

‘Let’s tell our stories – the positive impact of religion in education’ was originally planned to be in-person, spanning five days at the beautiful Klingenthal Château, Alsace. Sadly, due to the Pandemic, this has not been possible, but we welcome this online alternative event.

If you want to join this free online event, further information and online registration can be found here. The last day for registration is: 4 October 2021.
