Students from seven schools considered religion and its effect on the world at a conference that was the first of its kind in 西萨塞克斯.
The event at Chichester University’s Bognor campus was initiated 通过 Mrs Angela Smith, Head of RE at 主教星际官方网址学校 in Chichester, RE consultant for the 奇切斯特 diocese and vice-chairman of 西萨塞克斯 SACRE (Standing Advisory Council on Religion Education).
Mrs Smith drew on her connections to bring everyone together for the first 西萨塞克斯 Youth SACRE Voice Conference, having witnessed the success of the Hampshire Youth SACRE in 2015. Mrs Smith said, “They were given an understanding of where we think religion will be in the future and the growth of religion. They were given the opportunity to consider the question ‘Would the world be a better place without religion?’ through workshops and discussion groups. Thinking about why it is an important question, and the different religious attitudes, was the aim."
