ICCS discussion report now available

A working group of ICCS has dealt with issues of Christian education in schools with emphasis to areas of concern of the European discussion on education.

Outcomes and recommendations are now available in a 70 pages long discussion report:

ICCS: “Giving Europe a Heart and Soul.” A Christian Vision for education in Europe’s schools. Muenster 2003, price: 8 € plus mailing. Order:

The report starts with an introduction of the debate on European Citizenship and explores areas and tasks of school and local communities.

The implications for schools are presented in the next chapter where examples of existing models and teaching activities illustrate already existing contributions e.g. in the field of social education, spiritual education, education on global issues of inter-cultural education.

Support for teachers from Christians and the churches is demanded.

Other chapters deal with examples where churches undertake education on different levels and also about how churches act on the European level.

A number of recommendations to the civil organisations at the European level as well as for the churches and faith communities summarize the outcome of the working group. The discussion report is presented to politicians and church leaders to contribute to a necessary debate about Christian vision for education.
