The term “learning to live together”, central to UNESCO’s mission. The concept of learning to live together is centred on the development of understanding, consideration and respect for others, their beliefs, values and cultures. This is considered to provide the basis for the avoidance of conflicts or their non-violent resolution and for ongoing peaceful coexistence. Beyond that, it implies recognizing difference and diversity as opportunity rather than danger and as a valuable resource to be used for the common good. A good number of countries are also looking for new ways to encourage learning to live together , including human rights and citizenship education, education for peace, fighting against marginalization and all kinds of discrimination.

This review aims to answer the following main questions: what’s the extent and impact of homophobic bullying, how are homophobia and sexual orientation addressed within classrooms and across whole schools, and finally how are these sorts of issues being addressed among the school workforce?
