Welcome - And Our Invitation
While education is itself inherently a values-laden endeavour and forms the beating heart of quality education so also values are an integral and defining aspect of the human being and we extend a warm welcome to this website to all those concerned with the place and extent of values in their lives.
We hope that you will find ideas for quiet reflection and contemplation, inspiration for ways of thinking, being and doing that you would like to adopt and practical resources that you can use for teaching in a wide variety of settings.
Values-based education then has an essential part to play in the development of the individual and the path towards a better world for all.
What is Living Values Education?
Living Values Education is a global endeavour dedicated to nurturing hearts and educating minds. LVE provides an approach, and tools, to help people connect with their own values and live them.
Why Develop Values?
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.
For an overview of the organisation, its vision and aims, and how the Living Values Education Approach may be used in a wide variety of settings and ways including in schools, at home, and to support care for the environment, please download and read the ALIVE brochure. There are also brief introductions to our professional development courses for teachers, workshops, various online offerings, and extensive resource materials, all of which are designed to help nurture humanity's inherent goodness and made available around the world through our network of member organisations and supporting individuals.
