EFTRE very much regrets to announce that the triennial Conference, due to be held in Rome at the end of August next year, 2022, will be postponed. For reasons that will be all too obvious to everyone, it has not been possible for the executive and the Italian partners to make the necessary preparations for the event.
The conference is rescheduled for the parallel dates in the following year so it will now take place from 24th to 27th August in 2023. After all, Rome is the Eternal City and will still be there to welcome the EFTRE family then! The planning continues with the same topic previously announced: “Bridges over troubled waters – RE in changing times”. It explores how Religious Education can and has to adapt to a situation, where societies are in turmoil, and therefore is a way by which children and youths relate to and express religiosity.
In the meantime, the work of EFTRE continues. Ways to keep in touch are via the website and the Facebook and twitter accounts. EFTRE is also planning further virtual seminars at regular intervals.
