Religious Toleration and Peace (RETOPEA) is a European Horizon 2020 project that studies how people have felt about inter-faith societies in different places and at different times in history. Peace treaties, political speeches, school textbooks and fictional series are used as sources of inspiration to understand inter-religious tolerance today. 

RETOPIA allows 12- to 16-year-olds to make short documentary films or “docutubes” about subjects linked to peaceful coexistence. Young people from the Foyer network are among those taking part.
