Q: What is the difference between related and relevant ?
A: 'Related' means connected or associated. Things that are related are connected in some way, or belong to the same topical group.

'Relevant' means that something is meaningfully related to what is being discussed or considered, and usually implies importance or significance.

It can also mean something that is correct, suitable or appropriate to the circumstances.

For instance:
• The discussion was related to climate control = the discussion was connected to climate control
• The discussion was relevant to climate control = the discussion was significantly related to climate control/ the discussion closely focused on climate control

Here, the second sentence emphasises both the closeness of the link between the discussion and climate control, as well as the significance of that link.

Basically, you can think of it as 'related' = 'something which is involved with [something]' and 'relevant' as 'something which is closely involved with and important/significant to [something]'.

Some more examples:
• I don't think the church and state should be related
• I don't think religion is relevant these days
• Drug use and crime are closely related
• Candidates with relevant experience in child care will be considered
• I'm distantly related to him
• How relevant an issue is immigration to you?
• You are responsible for paying all related costs
