Comparative Religion and Culture Education

Comparative Religion and Culture Education

To the Countries of the United Nations:

We, citizens of the world, believe that in order for there to be peace, there must first be understanding. We, therefore, ask that the Member States of the United Nations require comparative religion and comparative culture education in their secondary schools. Young people should have the right to be educated about the ways in which other people live and the beliefs that they practice. We believe that this is a vital step in reversing the cycle of violence and working towards peace and understanding on Earth.

Sincerely,
The Undersigned

    I strongly agree with this petition, as I think it is important for people to learn about

    the diverse religions in order to respect each other's beliefs. No one deserves to be

    discriminated against just because they have a different perspective on how life works! If

    students had the opportunity to learn about the different cultures
    also I strongly believe students of the world shall get all the information about others

    culture and develop tolerance for their leadership skills to develop and be a good leaders

    of tomorrow. In practice cultural education and the knowledge about others religion shall

    be given at a school level to make sure every citizen of the world have the knowledge about the world.

No one deserves to be discriminated against just because they have a different perspective on how life works! If students had the opportunity to learn about the different cultures, I think it would be beneficial in that they will be able to see that there is no "normal" or "weird" when it comes to culture, religion or race. By having people learn about the different perspectives in life, there would no longer be any shame for being who you truly are.

    Yes, I agree with this. If we were educated about other cultures and religions, it would build global bridges, and get rid of stereotypes to do with religion, culture, and countries. I have experience with this issue, and I think it's an excellent idea, and one that promote globalization and global citizenship.

  • i support culture education 100% also we as citizens of the world we first have to learn and accept the facts that we are of different of o culture and we must learn to accepts ourselves and our culture background well enough embrace it so that we can teach our children may it at home, school, church,mosques, etc for them to be able to understand and relate well with others of the difference cultures, this will help them to accept each other in the society because what i believe something thought by a parents hold more meaning and strong virtues in a child. so when they happened to go higher in the their education they are about to meet this teachings which will not be a unknown language to them.
