Ethics Education Trainings

  • Through our Ethics Education Trainings, facilitators in formal and non-formal education settings can learn how to create spaces and opportunities to nurture ethical values and spirituality in children and young people within the framework of the Child's right to education as stated in the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child. The Ethics Education Trainings help facilitators to learn transformative pedagogies that promote children’s active and meaningful participation, critical thinking and consciousness, and collective action.
