Dear members and friends of EARLI SIG 19,

This year, the SIG 19 Conference will take place on 18-19 September in a digital setting on the topic

“Religious and worldview education at a time of multiple crises.”

Today's world is characterized by various political and societal challenges wherein
religions and worldviews also play a role. The weaponization of religious differences
for political purposes is once again on the rise, and educational approaches to support
coexistence and social cohesion, tailored to contemporary contexts, are needed.
Simultaneously, there is a growing awareness of the urgent need for significant and
swift lifestyle changes due to the existential challenges humanity faces, such as
climate change. The critical potential of worldview diversity in widening imaginations
and fostering necessary cultural transformations for sustainability must be
acknowledged and nurtured. Education in the domain of religions and worldviews is a
realm that both influences and is influenced by the various crises at hand, and
research in this area is inherently contextualized within them. The conference aims to
illuminate and discuss how research on religions and worldviews in education is
evolving amidst multiple crises.

Keynote Speakers will be:

Mualla Selcuk “What Makes a Resilient Teacher? A response from worldview of


Elina Kuusisto "Purposefulness creating resilience at a time of multiple crises".
