Learning to Live Together: An Intercultural and Interfaith Programme for Ethics Education

Learning to Live Together is designed to contribute to the realization of children’s right to a full and healthy physical, mental, spiritual, moral and social development. The program provides an educational framework that can be easily adapted to different social and cultural contexts, articulating theory and practice for nurturing ethical values in children and young people.

Learning to Live Together provides educators in formal and non-formal education settings worldwide with tools for designing, implementing, and evaluating intercultural and interfaith educational experiences that empower children to develop a stronger sense of ethical awareness and global citizenship. There are two manuals, tailored for working with children from 6 to 11 years old, and children 12 to 18 years old.

Since its launch in 2008, Learning to Live Together has reached 441,600 children in 45 countries, thanks to the initiatives taken by our implementing partners. In addition, more than 4,900 facilitators have been trained in the use of the program, and 51 of them have become international trainers.
