Visiting SpeakerRead Now
The National Centre for Religious Studies, the Centre for Science and Citizenship, and The Nathaniel Centre wish to understand young people’s thinking about some significant issues of our times. To do this, they are inviting all Year 13 students in Catholic schools across the country to take part in a short, anonymous online survey called “What Is Your Stand?” Each question in the survey outlines a particular issue and asks the student where they stand on this issue. They are then asked to provide reasons for their stance. The results of the surveys will be used to improve the national Catholic Religious Education Curriculum. The results will also provide insights into the ways that young people are responding to the world in which they find themselves and the ethical issues that arise here. The survey is the first step of a larger project in which the researchers will explore (via focus groups) how young people are conceptualising and navigating the ethical challenges with which they are confronted.
