Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I have been traveling the world engaging in various humanitarian activities with small teams of people who are helping those in need. I also teach Ethics, Corporate Social Responsibility, and International Integration & Regional Trade to undergraduate and graduate students around the world.
I have come to realize teaching future leaders that they have an ethical responsibility to make the world a better place is a great start for creating a more peaceful world. However, I have come to realize that more can be done, and should be done associated with developing domestic policies and trade agreements that are benefitial for all those involved. It all starts with a respect and honor for humanity...which is the beginning of any talk concerning ethics.
Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life. - Albert Schweitzer
