Abstract

Time for Tea is time for The Cube of Humanity My students and I participated in an international project Time for Tea with Momentum World from England in which we discussed a rather bleak prospects for our world. We concluded that we can make a change in the world only by changing ourselves and become active citizens. Therefore, we made a list of the most important virtues we could start with. Six virtues – six faces of a dice. That was the beginning of The Cube of Humanity Project. Do you want to hear how far we threw the Cube of Humanity and who was reached by our message?
