Additional Details

What are the main issues affecting children that the LTLT Programme is responding to?
Through a number of activities, which included visiting various religious and cultural sites, children learned about each other, reflected on values like empathy and respect for diversity, and explored ways to contributing to positive transformations in their local communities.

Encounters like this are rare in Europe, especially in the context of informal educational settings. This summer camp presented a unique opportunity for children to reflect on their common humanity and their shared responsibilities, and to deepen their spirituality by affirming each other’s identity and lives.

What topics/areas have you explored during the implementation?
Nurturing Spirituality
Nurturing Values
Strengthening children’s capacity to make ethical decisions based on values
Reflect about individual and collective responsibility to act in peaceful and compassionate ways
Fostering Learning to Live in solidarity with people of different religions, ethnicities or cultures

Did children engage in collaborative projects/actions as a result of their participation in the program? If yes, tell us more about it.

Is there anything that you would like to share?
The participants had the chance to visit various different religious sites, such as a Hindu temple, a Synagogue, a Mosque, and a Catholic church. One activity involved visiting the Peace Palace and Humanity House interactive museum in the Hague, where one has the opportunity to experience what a refugee hears, sees and thinks in a region of conflict or a disaster area.
