Shared values

Educatis’ behaviour and focus is founded on a universal set of values. These values shape our commitments and our mission, and are non-negotiable.

Commitments

Educatis gears its activities towards the needs of humankind, nature, and society in equal measure. It thus reflects the conviction that research and education will serve life only when contributing to the sustainable improvement of the circumstances of society, while preserving the ecosystem of Earth.

Human behaviour should never occur at another’s expense, rather for the sustainable benefit of all. This requires the awareness, respect and appreciation of other cultures and mentalities. Educatis has implemented the ten principles in Higher Education established by the UN Global Compact and is constantly enlarging its international network with partners that will use their combined knowledge and experience to contribute to a better overall understanding of global economic, social and cultural interactions

The co-development of innovative ideas in education and research aid in successfully addressing the enormous challenges faced by humankind today, whilst helping define the path towards sensible and sustainable development for current and future civilisations. Educatis’ endeavour is grounded in the multicultural and democratic tradition of Switzerland.
