Living Diversity in Education

Professional seminar on diversity-conscious educational approaches in Germany and Israel

The social awareness for individual differences and characteristics will only be widespread, when the educational work goes hand by hand with diversity-conscious methods and approaches.

As part of the ongoing project “Living Diversity in Germany and Israel – Challenges and Perspectives for Education and Youth Exchange” ConAct is offering a bilateral professional seminar in Leipzig. This seminar will provide a comparative insight into various established approaches of diversity-conscious education, including the ones which deal mainly with democracy education and anti-discrimination work.
In the three main sessions of the seminar, the participants will be introduced intensively to the concepts of Anti-Bias, Social Justice and Betzavta / More Than One Democracy and will have the chance to test selected methods of these approaches.

A broad range of topics from the spectrum of diversity-conscious education will be tackled in this seminar: intersectional approaches of dealing with different forms of discrimination, democratic processes and decisions in diverse societies, confrontation with social conflicts as well as empowerment of marginalized groups, to name only a few.
