The Religious Toleration and Peace (RETOPEA) H2020 project

Friday, March 15, 2024 - 12:00 to 13:00
Online, via Microsoft Teams

This session reflects on the project Religious Toleration and Peace (RETOPEA), and its ‘Docutube’ method. The Docutube method supports young people’s active learning about religious diversity in the past and present through the creative process of making short documentary-style films (‘Docutubes’). It has been developed by the Religious Studies team at the Open University as an innovative approach to promote critical and creative engagement with notions of religious toleration and peace. The research was initially funded by the European Commission through their H2020 programme, which enabled the RETOPEA team to run pilot workshops in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Estonia, North Macedonia, Finland and Poland. Since then, through funding from Culham St Gabriel and The Open University’s Open Societal Challenges programme, we have been able further to pilot the approach in England and Northern Ireland, and in the Muslim majority countries of Albania and Jordan.
