Long-time member of the SMP, Dr Yonah Matemba has highlighted what he sees as a challenge for teachers and lecturers in Malawi, that of implementing Multi-Faith Religious Education. This is a topic which is critically addressed in a book co-authored by Dr Matemba: “Religious Education in Malawi and Ghana: Perspectives on Religious Misrepresentation and Misclusion” (2021).

All are warmly invited to a co-designed and co-hosted MaSP and SMP Faith Forum on this subject, together with Dr Matemba and other experts. This will be a hybrid event held both on Zoom and in Edinburgh City Chambers. In-person attendees will have the opportunity to stay an extra 30 minutes at the end for networking over Mzuzu Coffee.

Dr Matemba is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Education and Social Sciences at the University of the West of Scotland and Chair of the SMP’s Further & Higher Education Forum.
