Practitioners’ toolbox

Here you can find films that provide practical support to practitioners working to promote FORB.

For example providing tools for religious literacy and FORB context analysis. The films are useful for personal understanding and for use in your organisation or community. The two context analysis films connect to context analysis exercises in our FORB facilitators’ toolkit – use them to help you lead context analysis processes in your organisation or in trainings you hold.

The films all come from the FORB learning platform’s training of the trainers course.
