The main goal of the project is a systemic change in the approach to teaching ethics in schools. The project will affect the quality of interfaith dialogue in the school environment and in the local community of the city of Poznań. As part of the project, we provide support to teachers of ethics, and show how important it is to teach this subject in a city whose inhabitants represent various religious communities and groups. Deliverables and outcomes elaborated within the project will also support teaching religious studies. Ethics in school can help people of different views find common ground. As part of the project, we conduct a series of workshops and meetings introducing the content of religious studies to ethics classes in Poznań schools. We emphasize the importance of anti-discrimination, multi-religion and freedom of conscience in teaching ethics. We engage teachers, and other people participating in meetings and workshops, in the creation of educational materials. We create a space where people engaged in the project will discuss and implement new content and test new tools in educational institutions. Free educational materials for ethics classes are published on the Internet. They are, among others: a project website with materials elaborated as the result of the workshops, a post-workshop set of recommendations and scenarios developed by representatives of educational institutions, people from various religious backgrounds, as well as experts in the field of ethics (available free-of-charge on the project website and on Facebook), a set of information materials promoting ethics in school and the idea of religious pluralism in Poznań. The outcomes of the project will be beneficial for: school teachers and other educators (they will obtain educational materials), school students (they will expand their knowledge) and religious minorities (they will gain new space for integration).
