Imagine a world where children are taught to think not only of themselves when making choices, but also of the impact of those choices on others and the world as a whole. In 2006, looking for an innovative solution to violence and other challenges faced by schools, Bond zonder Naam Cooperation Circle in Belgium worked with seven schools to pilot the Living Values Education Program (LVE), involving whole school communities in learning positive values and building cultures of respect. Developed by an international community of educators in 1997, the curriculum has had enormous success in reducing conflict and dropout rates in schools around the world. BzN has trained 700 educators since the start of the program and inspired other schools in Belgium to take it on.
