This foundation is fundamentally engaged in collaborating with various universities on global ethics projects. The foundation offers ongoing seminars and events for professors and students. The subject of global ethics is particularly popular at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, where the first Research Center for Ethics and Social Responsibility was founded, and the Metropolitan Autonomous University.

School teachers have endeavoured through an initiative to strengthen interest in global ethics issues. These efforts are supported by the film How To Live Ethics, which was made with the support of the Mexican Global Ethic Foundation and National Geographic and is used primarily in the work with school children and high schoolers.
