Devoted to existence, guided by ethics 

We are the world’s first and only interdisciplinary International Institute for Animal Ethics. We help nature, humans, and animals live side by side. We do research, we teach, we create, we advise, and we assess businesses, universities, and destinations in order to preserve for future generations. We are fueled by love for the world around us and bring change in the best interest of humans and non-human animals.

Our Core Activities

Education & Training

We offer open-enrollment courses to enhance your career, strengthen your professional profile or complete your academic degree. On top of that, we offer in-person courses for professionals, businesses, governments, schools, and universities. 


We review and assess businesses, universities, and destinations on a variety of topics. From animal welfare to ethical and sustainable performance. Together we change the lives of human animals and non-human-animal interactions globally.
