BEAGLE - Bioethical Education and Attitude Guidance for Living Environment
Bioethical Education and Attitude Guidance for Living Environment or BEAGLE is a bioethical project funded and approved by the European Union (Erasmus+), which brings together international partners from the Mediterranean Pool with the aim of promoting open education and innovative educational practices. Associations Petit Philosophy (Croatia), StePS (Italy) and InternetNow! (Greece) with Centre for Integrative Bioethics of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Split (Croatia), and Faculty of Theology of the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) have decided to share their experiences with the intention of developing new ones, which will help them in the creation, testing and implementation of innovative methods of education and teaching based on bioethical values.
The project BEAGLE focuses on the field of bioethics and values education. We aim to empower education of primary and high school students, teachers and educators by promoting values of critical thinking based on three pillars:Ethical values: Ethical issues are observed through personal values – a connection between myself and nature. What can I as a person do? Democratic values: Democratic and societal values are dissected through the connection between my society and nature. What can we as a society do? Environmental values: Bioethical/environmental values are focused on the preservation of biodiversity. How to live in harmony with nature?
