The world is becoming more and more globalised, and our society increasingly multicultural. We have already learned to be fluent in our encounters with people speaking a different language, coming from a different culture or having a different skin colour. However, encountering and addressing different religions is still hard for us. Perhaps the next generation will learn to be more open towards different worldviews?

In the past, early childhood education was very Christianity-oriented, so taking into account the diversity of worldviews is a major change.
Even small children are often interested in matters relating to worldviews. It is good to send them a message that they are in a safe space to talk about things that determine our life.
