About Events

5th International Conference being organized by City Montessori School, Asharfabad Campus, Lucknow, India from 16th to 18th August 2015 at the World Unity Convention Centre, CMS Kanpur Road Campus, LDA Colony, Lucknow, India. Each day millions of parents from diverse religious backgrounds entrust the education of their children to the teachers in schools. For this reason, teachers need to be fully informed about the constitutional and educational principles for understanding the role of religion in education. This conference is an effort to move beyond the confusion and conflict that has surrounded the religion. For most of our history, extremes have shaped much of the debate whether education of religion should be schools' concern or not. At one end of spectrum, are those who advocate promotion of religion (usually their own) in school practices and policies, at the other end, are those who view schools as religion free zones. Neither of these approaches is consistent with the need of the hour.
Knowledge about religion is not only a characteristic of an educated person but is also absolutely necessary for understanding and living in the world of diversity. Unfortunately sometimes due to communication gaps and our pre conceived notions about people from different religious background, we either withdraw ourselves or for the sake of survival behave destructively. This is primarily the reason behind the conflict, strife and stress that is enveloping human lives today all over the world. To remove this darkness of ignorance, to break these barriers that divide, to set our minds free of prejudices it is important to have an interaction, a dialogue especially where people from diverse backgrounds live and work and work in close proximaty. Hence, this International Interfaith Conference.
