The kick-off meeting of the consortium of the LIFE Project “Learning Interculturality From rEligion” will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria on 08-09/02/2017. The project is financed with the support of the European Comission under the Erasmus + Cooperation for innovation and good practices programme, over a period of two years, starting September 2016 until August 2018.

The project is focused on an innovative, participatory-based, pedagogical method for developing transversal skills related to multiculturalism and integration. It aims to ensure first and foremost the right of children to be fully integrated through adequate intercultural and inter-religious mediation. Since religion is a paradigmatic element of culture, the development of religious pluralism and the implementation of tools to ensure it, especially within schools, are relevant aspects in order to save the intercultural dimension of Europe. In this sense, education to religious pluralism is a key to achieve civil awareness and social cohesion in the construction of a democratic model of European citizenship.
