But conflicts persist and finding moral common ground requires communication and collaboration, both virtual and face-to-face.
Our founder Andrew Carnegie realized that education and moral dialogue were critical toward achieving a more peaceful planet. Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Network brings those founding principles together by engaging teachers, students, and publics around the world in a conversation on a global ethic.
With its global fellowship, student mentorships, and online social network, the Global Ethics Network sparks the creation of new educational resources, the joint exploration of global issues, and the formation of meaningful and lasting partnerships.
Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Network provides a platform for educational institutions around the world to create and share interactive multimedia resources that explore the ethical dimensions of international affairs.
The Global Ethics Fellows and their home institutions form the heart of the Network. They are developing multimedia production facilities that will allow Network partners to record original content created by students and educators. The Network combines existing Carnegie Council resources with their institutions to ignite new ideas and foster lively debate on such subjects as human rights, conflict resolution, and environmental sustainability.
The Network's educational resources include:
By using these resources, students and educators from across the Network conduct independent research and promote ethical inquiries within their communities. Students from the Middle East can record interviews with experts in New York City, while educators in Southeast Asia can collaborate on online curricula with colleagues in Oregon. Through such collaboration, the Network enables its partners to rethink their moral assumptions.
Ethics Fellows for the Future are student mentees of Carnegie Council Global Ethics Fellows. The purpose of the program is to build the next generation of thinking on ethical issues in international affairs and to facilitate cooperation and dialogue between students from different regions of the world. Mentors will help Fellows for the Future develop collaborative research projects, joint papers, and multimedia by coordinating virtual and in-person collaboration with other students and Fellows.
The duration of this unpaid, non-resident mentorship is one year. In order to qualify for this affiliation, you must be selected by a Global Ethics Fellow.
