UNESCO has developed an Ethics Teacher Training Course with a goal to promote the quality of ethics teaching and to educate a new generation of highly qualified, stimulating and inspiring teachers. It is aimed particularly at a younger generation of university teachers so that ethics teaching programs in the near future can expand and improve in all Member States of UNESCO.

15 young teachers from Belarus, Iran, China, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation, Azerbaijan and Ethiopia gathered in Minsk with the purpose to get acquainted with the methodologies, methods, means and resources of teaching ethics as well as enhance their skills and abilities in this field. These young specialists express their gratitude to the authors, trainers and organizers of the course.

The Organizers express their hope that after the course lectures of these teachers will be more influential and attractive for their students.
