Climate Change and Values Book

Climate Change and Values Book

Reflect for a moment on the world your heart longs for...

How might the values of peace, love, respect, honesty, cooperation and freedom create a social fabric of harmony and change?

Climate Change is no longer coming, it is here now and the majority of the seven billion people on the planet are aware to varying degrees. Large numbers of people are in some way starting to experience the dynamic of a world fast disintegrating into a very real potential of global deprivation and terror for many.

Climate affects food production, extreme weather and temperature, the safety of homes, floods, fires and safe water supplies. These events result in mass migration, a reduction in sustainable living and the destruction of flora and fauna that support the biosphere. We, together with our children are at risk of a devastating future.

Einstein said that you cannot solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it. If this is true then we need to look not at a quick fix to each drama that unfolds, rather at the reason we have created this experience. Clearly, our collective Values need to be addressed and change the way we live our lives.

Embracing Values in our daily life directly impacts how we live on the planet. We could be the change we want to see in the world, with a goal to change the way we live and start to give our Earth and Her Oceans the opportunity to heal.

This book is dedicated to that objective - to bring awareness through engaging these carefully thought-out activities for children and adults to create understanding, affirm our Values and stimulate positive action in our daily lives before it is too late.

Materials for Schools - Free Downloads below

Designed to address the whole child/person, Living Values Education activities engage people of all ages in exploring, experiencing and expressing values so they can find those that resonant in their heart, and build the social and emotional skills, which enable them to live those values.

The universal values explored are of Peace, Respect, Love, Cooperation, Happiness, Honesty, Humility, Responsibility, Simplicity, Tolerance, Freedom, Unity and more.

The initial set of five books known as the Living Values Education series are:

  • Living Values Education Activities for Children Ages 3-7
  • Living Values Education Activities for Children Ages 8-14
  • Living Values Education Activities for Young Adults
  • LVE Educator Training Guide

 

Values Activities for Children Ages 3-7, 8-14 and Young Adults

Recognising the many challenges faced by teachers today with all ages of young people we have created a Library of Values Activity booklets which are essentially 'classroom aids' providing ideas, using activities to assist in dealing with specific classroom issues, capturing student imagination, participation and discussion, perhaps bringing our young people to a different; more caring and responsible space.

Each value activities booklet of approx. 40-56 pages is easily printed on school printer as A5 booklet/pocket book size, landscape, 2 up, colour cover and b/w inside. If you have a machine that staples great, if not a long-nose stapler will do the trick. Alternatively, you could download the files and order your choice of booklets from your local photocopy shop (one colour) for about $3 each.

Living Values Education Values Cards

The simple values cards (setup as four per A4 page) are used as reminders for what the values offer to us and we offer to the values. Ideal for printing off and using one value each day for a week to remind ourselves of the treasure they can bring to our lives. The values cards are ideal for creating a point of focus in group situations, passing around and sharing with one another about what the particular value means to us, thus opening the doors for mutual discussion and self-discovery.
