Best practice Educating young people

Peer-workshops based on educational films.

The workshops are based on five educational films dealing with questions of Islam, racism, Islamism and democracy. They encourage debates about religious concerns of youngsters in heterogeneous teaching environments and provide space to reflect about questions of norms, values, identity and participation. As interventions prior to and in early stages of radicalisation, they aim at fostering identification as German Muslims.

The workshops are conducted by peers (who themselves have a Muslim background) and allow quick, short term interventions (generally 3* 90min) to topics that arise in schools or social centres. The films and workshops explicitly do not follow a religious argumentation; instead, they take up religious concerns as starting points for discussion and translate them into general questions about social norms and values.
