Ethics Education for Children

Enhancing children's innate ability to make positive contributions

Learning to Live Together Good Practices

After the launch of Learning to Live Together in Hiroshima, Japan in May 2008, the manual has been disseminated widely through UNESCO and UNICEF regional and national offices, the GNRC network, members of the Interfaith Council on Ethics Education for Children and its Committee, CRC Committee members, educators and teachers, youth leaders and others interested.
The manual is currently available in hard copy in English, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish, and online also in Arabic on our website and on the UNESCO webpage.

A first step in an impact evaluation is currently being undertaken by mapping the dissemination and implementation of the manual around the world. The current results show that Learning to Live Together is being used successfully in 28 countries and it is now being proposed as a model for curriculum development in schools and for programmes in religious and non religious youth groups and peace clubs.

The material is being used in different areas and contexts, such as parenting programmes, counteracting violence with children living in the street and to fight domestic violence, among others. Various practices have been identified for deeper analysis and evaluation covering the various educational settings, formal, in-formal and non-formal, where the educational manual is currently used.

Arigatou International is currently developing booklets of good practices that can help enhancing the use of the manual in various contexts. The booklets are available online below and in hard copy from the Genevan office.

The Massa-Massar programme, created by the GNRC in Israel, focuses on young Jewish and Arab Israeli citizens born in Israel in the hope that young people sharing the same land and citizenship can live together in a peaceful existence. The Massa-Massar programme creates opportunities for Jews and Palestinians to learn to meet the others with empathy and an attitude of reconciliation. (Click on the banner to open the brochure)
