An initiative to introduce the Learning to Live Together manual in schools in Athens is being developed in collaboration with the Inter-Orthodox Center of the Church of Greece, under the leadership of Dr Angelos Vallianatos, National Advisor on Religion Lessons for the Greek Ministry of Education.  The initiative aims to train teachers of primary, secondary and gymnasium levels on the use of the manual to be implemented as part of religious, physical, civic and general education courses in their different educational settings.

From 5 to 8 August an ethics education workshop was held at the Myochikai premises in Tokyo to introduce and train members of the youth and women's division in the the Learning to Live Together Programme.  The workshop brought together 28 participants whom for four days engaged in interactive dialogue and activities to learn about the conceptual and pedagogical framework of the manual and gain practical skills to implement it in their groups.
