Founded in 2012 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, the IEV team has conducted a number of successful ethics-related projects in our home country. We have since reached out and expanded our work to the international level.
We develop and offer efficient tools and support to kindergartens and schools in the context of strengthening ethics and universal human values among children and youths.
We strongly believe that learning and embracing basic human values and ethical principles is an important step towards healthy personal development and an important tool in strengthening the immunity of individuals, communities, and society against negative societal occurrences.
We want to raise awareness of the importance of ethics and values for the welfare of individuals, communities and the society at large.
