Support for teachers in their approach to secularism

With 10 €,
Coexister finances:
1 young people educated about secularism


"Coexister à l'École" meets a need of many teachers who say they are overwhelmed and ill-equipped to tackle secularism.

According to a study carried out by IFOP in 2020,one teacher in two has already censured himself in his teaching of religious issues and secularism.

However, these subjects are part of the school curriculum, and are necessary to guarantee a quality civic education, conducive to living together.

Since 2009, Coexister has had its volunteers intervene in schools on these subjects. But with the growing number of requests, it's becoming essential to equip and train teachers directly to multiply our impact tenfold.


"Coexister à l'École" is a turnkey tool designed to meet the needs of teachers. Based on Coexister's 14 years of experience in schools, it is produced at the request of the teachers we meet every year in 400 schools. It will be supplemented by training and support from the Coexister team. 

Designed for use in the classroom, the kit aims to help teachers foster a better understanding of secularism.

Training is offered free of charge to make it easy to get started.
