The term ethics and value education (EVE) applies to all aspects of education which either explicitly or implicitly relate to ethical dimensions of life and are such that can be structured, regulated and monitored with appropriate educational methods and tools. Among the main aims of EVE are the following: to stimulate ethical reflection, awareness, responsibility, and compassion in children, provide children with insight into important ethical principles and values, equip them with intellectual capacities for responsible moral judgment, to develop approaches to build a classroom or school environment as an ethical community, and to reflectively situate individuals into other local and global communities with a mission to contribute to the common good. All these enable pupils to overcome prejudice, discrimination, and other unethical practices and attitudes. EVE is oriented into nurturing respectful attitude towards others (both individuals and communities alike) and putting one’s beliefs, attitudes and values into practice..
