- Showing Alternatives!
Target Group: Youth from the 5th class
Location: Schools in Germany
Main Action: Production of videos on the subjects of Islam, anti-Islam, democracy and Islamism and exercises for pedagogical practice. The videos cover up-to-date questions and topics that young people deal with in everyday life and to which they find, above all, the content of salafistic actors. The search for meaning and orientation of young people is taken seriously. The goal is to promote a reflective approach to religiously based identity concepts. The videos are complemented by learning materials for school and youth work. These materials take up the topics and questions of the videos and make it possible to work with the young people in depth.
