Educational activities with the youth conducted in the context of the exhibition help to introduce historical backgrounds and traditions of peaceful coexistence in the Sultanate.
Inclusion of topics as religious tolerance and respect for other cultures in schoolbooks and curricula is essential for the prosperous future of the nation. This is done in cooperation with the Ministry of Education.
One example of these activities is #ACTFORTOLERANCE ➤. This is intended for raising awareness to the topic and engaging the global youth in promoting the concept of living together in peace.
Another example is the creation of a Colouring Book World Religions for kids age 5+. This was a fruit of work done by members of the organizational team of the exhibition project and experts belonging to the network of exhibitors.
This colouring book is unique in bringing together the most widespread faiths: Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
It makes young children familiar with some very basic knowledge about those religions on an egalitarian level. Such as symbols and places of worship. It creates also a basis to encourage religious tolerance and respect for common values.
Concept of this small multilingual booklet is to link children’s natural passion for drawing and puzzles with a positive educational experience.
The book is free and can be downloaded from the internet as PDF. To download the coloring book in your preferred language, please click here on this Direct Link ➤.
