In recognition that it is completely impractical for most of the world’s population to attend workshops and participate in organised Living Values activities due to cost, time and travel ...
We are working with people of all ages affected by natural disasters, areas with conflict, personal hardship circumstances, incarceration and rehabilitation.
The choices of young people are critically important, not only for their own happiness and well-being at this vulnerable time in their lives, but also for their future.
Cooperation is so important and unifying of our collective aims, we invite discussions from like minded groups who are inspired to join together with us to create a better and wider world of values Awareness.
Contact your country member and tell them of your interest and ask what you can do to help, to become involved. Start developing your own awareness for your own values right now by participating in the online 12 week LVE Self Reflection.
Positive and heart-warming stories from educators as well as educator evaluations have been collected from teachers implementing Living Values Education around the world. The most frequent themes noted in the reports are positive changes in teacher-student relationships and in student-student relationships both inside and outside the classroom.
Educators note an increase in respect, caring, cooperation, motivation, and the ability to solve peer conflicts on the part of the students. Aggressive behaviours decline as positive social skills and respect increase. Living Values Education helps educators create safe, caring, values-based atmospheres for quality learning.
We are receiving wonderful feedback on the newly updated and expanded Living Values Education Activities for Children Ages 8–14, Book 1 and Living Values Education Activities for Children Ages 3–7, Book 1. Released 1 October 2018 and 2 January 2019, respectively, these books are relevant to the needs and issues of young people today while retaining LVE’s strength in exploring and developing values and social and emotional skills. The book for children ages three to seven includes new stories and delightful activities. The book for children ages eight through fourteen helps them learn how to deal with bullying, encourage themselves in positive ways and increase their motivation and capacity to be force for inclusion, kindness, peace and respect.
No matter what role we are currently playing, whether it be child in a family, parent, person in business, employee, school teacher, government official, retiree, whatever age, gender, nationality, spiritual belief, we all have one thing in common; a human requirement to meet our basic needs – to be Safe, Respected, Understood, Loved, Valued.
LVE workshops and seminars are highly recommended for educators and facilitators who wish to help young people explore and develop values. Join us to reflect on the role values play in your life and in the world.
