What can you find in the

NORADICA Web-App – English version – is dedicated to the topic of religious diversity in Europe seen both from the common EU perspective and from the European multi-country point of view.

NORADICA Web-App is divided in two main sections: Panorama and Interactive Resources.

In the “Panorama” section you will find short ad interesting texts including information on multireligious phenomena presenting the subject from different perspectives. While selecting the information for the “Panorama” section, we focused on finding data that would be the most interesting and relevant from the educational point of view. In order to make the information more accessible and to help you to identify thematic area that each particular text covers, we classified them into following thematic categories:

  • The religious landscape in Europe
  • The Issue of Radicalisation
  • Religion and New Generations: Youth Religious Awareness
  • Social Policy as a Response to Radicalisation
  • Cross-Religions Dialogue Initiatives
  • Multiculturalism and different religious at schools
  • Connections between schools, religious and communities

Each piece of information is initially presented in form of a brief summary; once you click on it you will be able to see the link that can redirect you to the original text or file.

The “Interactive Resources” are offered as an addition and extension to the “Panorama” section; the Resources can serve you as inspiration or be used in any form or way that you find suitable. Some materials are more extensive and complex and some include a simple photo. We decided to post them as such, with no additional comments.
