Interreligious education in schools: practice, potential and challenges

Opening hours / Beginning:

4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

4 May 2023


Main Building, Room: B 006 Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1 80539 München

Schools are a microcosm of society. They reflect our religious and ideological diversity. Yet they are also a place where the next generation is educated for the future. One of the major challenges is peaceful coexistence between religions and ideologies.

How can school education be made to work in this context? How can young people work out what they believe while also engaging with other traditions in a spirit of tolerance? What potential – and what prejudices – do the religions themselves bring to the table? What part can interreligious education play in cultivating democracy? These and other questions will be addressed by the speakers against the backdrop of a specific religion or denomination.

The event is organized by the Chairs of Fundamental Theology, Canonical Law, Religious Education and Social Ethics at the Faculty of Catholic Theology at LMU Munich and by the Eugen Biser Foundation.

This event will be held in German. No prior registration is required. For more information, please visit the website of the Chair of Canonical Law.
