The Living Ethics Project is a collaborative and participatory project bringing together an interdisciplinary working group to develop a “living ethics”, an ethics inspired by pragmatism that seeks to firmly ground in lived experiences. The members of the working group come from different backgrounds and share the goal of enriching ethics to improve human health and wellbeing.

Living Ethics is an ethics in motion articulated, learned, enriched and evolving through the experiences of each person. Given the fundamentally collaborative and participatory nature of living ethics, living ethics is developed and lived through the active participation of the members of the working group, who discuss, exchange and reflect on the implementation and methodological directions that could be taken by a living ethics.
