Save the Date! Global Ethics Day, October 17, 2018

THE FIFTH ANNUAL GLOBAL ETHICS DAY WILL BE ON OCTOBER 17, 2018.
#globalethicsday2018

Global Ethics Day is a global teach-in and an opportunity for institutions to explore the role of ethics in a globalized world.

Inspired by Earth Day and founded by Carnegie Council as part of its Centennial activities in 2014, it provides an opportunity for organizations around the world to hold events on or around this day.

We encourage institutions everywhere to use Global Ethics Day to hold programs focusing on ethics, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, panel discussions, or activities to help the environment. In the tradition of a "teach-in" model, these events will be run by each institution as it sees fit while being part of a worldwide Global Ethics Day.

Popular topics include ethics in business, the environment, ethics in the classroom, personal values, democracy, and human rights. What is the ethical issue that matters most to you? For more ideas and thousands of resources, visit Carnegie Council's online education and multimedia collections. Questions about Global Ethics Day? Contact Madeleine Lynn: mlynn@cceia.org.

Over 60 organizations and individuals from 31 countries on five continents took part in Global Ethics Day 2017. From the Gambia to Nicaragua to Romania, everyone celebrated in their own way. To see what people did last year, click here.

Join us. Together, let's work to make ethics matter.

Global Ethics Weekly: Migration in the Age of "Zero Tolerance"

Today's discussions about immigrants and refugees are focused on the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on the U.S.-Mexico border and the "migration crisis" in the Mediterranean. Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Kavitha Rajagopalan explores the history of these debates, what it means to be undocumented in Europe versus the United States, and why many still view immigration through the prisms of terrorism and crime.

China's "Opinion Deterrence" with Isaac Stone Fish

"I think it's important to contrast what China is doing with what Russia is doing," says Asia Society's Isaac Stone Fish. "Russia influence operations and Russia influence is much more about sowing chaos, it's about destabilization, it's about making America weaker. China is much more about making China stronger. The United States is a vector and a way for China to become stronger." Elon Musk, Alibaba, and China's internal power structures are also discussed in this wide-ranging talk.

American vs. Chinese Propaganda, with Robert Daly

As China's middle class grows, Hollywood is making films with this audience in mind, says the Wilson Center's Robert Daly, previously a producer for the Chinese version of "Sesame Street." How is this different from filmmaking in the World War II and Cold War eras? And why did the Chinese government have a problem with Cookie Monster and Grover?
