  • Strengthening Family Systems

    Uribe Torres, Maria Lucia (2015)
    This paper describes the role of the family in the identity formation and development of the child, particularly in the development of children who positively embrace who they are, their differences with others, and who are empowered to participate and contribute to the positive transformation of their communities. The author first describes the changing identity of the family today and the impact on the development of children; then she analyzes the importance of strengthening positive child-­‐‑rearing skills in parents and extended family, particularly during early childhood, in light of the changing landscape of the family; and last she reflects on critical questions on the role of the family in nurturing values that help children develop as global citizens in a changing society.
  • Potentials and Pitfalls in Interreligious Dialogue

    Ucko, Hans (2015)
    “No religion is an island” is a paraphrase on John Donne’s powerful words: “No man is an island”. I have many times heard this paraphrase by the Jewish scholar A.J. Heschel and I have often used it myself. It is strange that we have to say it. Of course no religion is an island. Islam cannot do away with its links to Christianity and Judaism. There is a bridge between Judaism and Christianity. Buddhism is related to Hinduism and there is an intrinsic link between Jainism and Hinduism. Sikhism is not possible to understand without its context in India.

  • Educación Ética

    Hadsell, Heidi (2014-12-04)
    "La educación ética promueve el aprendizaje y el diálogo interreligiosos de varias maneras directas e indirectas. Quizás más importante, porque el contenido de la ética tiene mucho que ver con la comprensión individual o colectiva de sus responsabilidades frente a los demás y de sus relaciones con los otros. La educación ética alienta a los niños, a las niñas y a los jóvenes a pensar en esas relaciones en una época de sus vidas cuando están abiertos, sienten curiosidad por los demás, y están deseosos de hacer posible las relaciones con los demás."
  • Ethics and Interfaith Learning and Dialogue

    Hadsell, Heidi (2014-12-04)
    "Ethics education promotes interfaith learning and dialogue in many direct and indirect ways. Perhaps most importantly, because the content of ethics has so much to do with individual or group understanding of responsibilities to and relationships with other people, ethics education encourages our children and youth to think about these relationships at a time in their lives when they are open to and curious about other people, and eager to work out how to relate to them."
  • Revitalizing Family Life: A Muslim Perspective

    Omar, Abdul Rashied Ali (2014-12-04)

    Fondation Arigatou (Fondation Arigatou, 2008)
    Apprendre à vivre ensemble est un programme interculturel et interreligieux pour l’enseignement de l’éthique, destiné à contribuer à la réalisation du droit de l’enfant à un plein et sain développement physique, mental, spirituel, moral et social, ainsi qu'à la réalisation du droit à l'éducation tel qu'établit dans la Convention des Nations Unies relatives aux droits de l'enfant (CDE), dans l'article 26.1 de la Déclaration universelle des Droits de l'Homme (DUDH), dans la Déclaration mondiale sur l'éducation pour tous et dans les Objectifs du millénaire pour le Développement (OMD).

Il est conçu pour aider les jeunes à comprendre et à respecter les personnes d'autres cultures et religions, ainsi qu'à développer leur sentiment d'appartenance à une communauté mondiale. La présente resource à été développée en étroite collaboration avec l'UNESCO et l'UNICEF.
