Innovative Resource to Teach Young about Diverse Religions

New York, July 6th 2009 – “Knowing and understanding people’s beliefs is critical in building better relations within and among societies and religions. This is why the Alliance of Civilizations has made it a priority to work toward this goal. The Alliance has created an online network, named the Clearinghouse on Education about Religions and Beliefs (ERB), which provides users with educational materials and resources on tolerance and civic education,” said UN Alliance of Civilizations High Representative and former President of Portugal Jorge Sampaio.

Launched this week, the website (www.aocerb.org) features news, guidelines, learning and teaching materials, links to organizations, and lists of events relevant to learning about diverse religions and beliefs. It also includes an online forum which allows educators and policy-makers to exchange views and resources, learn from each others’ work and advance ideas about successful programs that teach about religions and beliefs.
