It's cause for Celebration – this is OUR DAY, World Values Day!

This day gives a great opportunity for all of us at ALIVE, together with our Associates and Focal Points for LVE, numerous LVE facilitators and teachers around the world, to say “Thank You” to each other and those around us - including our newsletter readers! - for all the energy and effort put into nurturing greater awareness of the importance of values and a society that lives by a culture of values. When we live by and model our values we create a “Values-based Atmosphere”, the dynamic environment in which Love and Peace are found and other values may emerge, grow and spread.

Today, 15th October 2020 - World Values Day - the Association for Living Values Education International is delighted to launch a new booklet in celebration of our values work and warmly invites you to make time for values today, perhaps inspired by our new Values Bookmarks or some of the other resources shown below.

The ALIVE Board wishes YOU a wonderful and happy day! It is your day, and so a great day on which to experience, express and enjoy happiness and wonder, as we celebrate and deepen the values that are the foundation of all we aspire for.
