In the United Kingdom, the Institute campaigns on issues relating to animal welfare, human rights and the environment, and it is currently developing a series of educational programs to raise awareness of Dr Schweitzer's philosophy of reverence for life and its potential for a more peaceful and sustainable world.[4]

The Quinnipiac branch of the Institute teaches young people ethical values and encourages their commitment to community service. Its main program activity in health care is the Schweitzer Conferences and Seminars Series for health care leaders held in Central and Eastern Europe and in countries of the former Soviet Union. These conferences explore clinical, public health, human rights and ethical issues in order to foster health care initiatives that improve the lives of under-served populations.[3]
