In Bruges

The European Forum for Teachers of Religious Education is holding its annual conference in Bruges from August 25-28.

The meeting is aimed at teachers, teacher trainers and RE advisers and researchers. As well as discussion groups and keynote speakers, including Professor Robert Jackson from Warwick University, the conference also includes a visit to the war cemeteries at Ypres and a chance to visit museums and places of worship in Bruges.

The fee is EUR270 (#163;246), with an early-bird reduction of 10 per cent for those who pay before April 1. Registration closes on July 1.

As green as a churchyard

Thousands of churches are expected to take part in Cherishing Churchyards Week in June. The event aims to raise awareness of the historical and natural importance of churchyards through events, including tours, workshops, guided walks, storytelling and plant identification.

This year there is a special focus on the plant life found in churchyards, as part of the UN's International Year of Biodiversity.

The event takes place from June 28 and is being run by the conservation charity Caring for God's Acre, supported by the Church of England's national environmental campaign, Shrinking the Footprint. About half the Church of England's 12,000 churchyards already run biodiversity projects.
