TOLERANCE STARTS AT SCHOOL

Tolerance starts at school

Tolerance starts at school

The project "Tolerance makes school" was launched in 2006 as an accompanying measure to "Musica Sacra International". The core concern of the project is to impart knowledge about the five world religions to children and young people, as well as a feeling for and respect for other cultures.

In today's world, it is becoming increasingly important to overcome prejudices and openly confront the supposedly foreign. In times of globalization, children and young people in particular need a good foundation of knowledge in order to understand and classify their own culture and religion.

The association MODfestivals e.V. offers a varied program for children and young people of all ages as part of its educational program. The offer is aimed at schools, after-school care facilities, kindergartens and daycare centers, but also at associations that care for children and young people.

Subprojects:

 

What do you believe in? - Reading series for preschoolers and children of elementary school age

Books are read and looked at together with the children (depending on their age). The aim is to discover similarities and differences in the religions and cultures and to talk about what they have read - but also about their own experiences. This is then creatively processed with the children.

There are readings on the following religions: Islam, Judaism, Buddhism and Hinduism.

Type of event: Reading with handicraft/painting/baking activity
Target group: preschoolers and children of elementary school age
Duration: approx. 1 hour
Number of participants: approx. 20 children / one class (in times of pandemic, based on current hygiene regulations)
Location: in the facilities or at cooperation partners (by arrangement)

 

How do you t(r)ick? - Animation workshop about faith, respect & tolerance

In the workshop, an animated film about a religion is created with the children. The children paint, make things, talk and film themselves. The films always focus on one aspect of a religion. The focus can be on the origin of an Indian deity or on a special religious festival, such as the Jewish Hanukkah festival. The goal is that the children deal with a religion and implement this creatively.

Type of event: Workshop
Target group: Children at the age of 8-12 years
Duration: 2-3 days, each about 3 hours
Number of participants: small groups of 6-10 children
Location: in the facilities or at cooperation partners (by arrangement)
Costs: 200,- Euro / workshop

 

 

 

Where does God live? - Mosque tour for children and young people (other places of worship on request)

Most of the time, people only know the houses of worship of their own religion. However, there is a certain shyness before houses of worship of other religions. And this is despite the fact that many places have a mosque. During the mosque visits, the children and young people tour the house of worship. They learn about the rituals and prayers and are explained the meanings of the individual areas of a mosque.

Type of event: Guided tour
Target group: children aged 8-18 years / if interested also for adults
Duration: approx. 1 hour
Number of participants: by arrangement
Location: Mosque Marktoberdorf or a mosque in the region
