Ethics Education Fellowship
Contributing to Global Citizenship and Building Inclusive and Peaceful Societies.
The Ethics Education Fellowship program seeks to strengthen the sustainable delivery of ethics education programs for children in formal education settings to advance global citizenship and build more peaceful and inclusive societies.
Ethics education equips learners with 21st-century competencies, helping them develop mutual understanding and respect, empathy and critical thinking. It nurtures in children the capacity to work together with others across religious, ethnic and cultural identities.
The Fellowship program is made possible through a partnership between the Ministries of Education of Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kenya, Mauritius, Nepal, and Seychelles, with Arigatou International, the Guerrand-Hermes Foundation for Peace, KAICIID International Dialogue Centre, the Muslim Council of Elders, the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity, the UNESCO New Delhi Cluster Office, and the UNESCO Regional Office for Eastern Africa, in collaboration with the National Commissions for UNESCO of the participating countries.
