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.

Making Foreign Policy Relevant Again, with Asha Castleberry & Ali Wyne

Has a gap opened up between the U.S. national security community and the general public over foreign policy? If so, why? How can we close it? This panel with foreign policy experts Asha Castleberry and Ali Wyne is part of a larger effort by Carnegie Council's U.S. Global Engagement Program to examine drivers in U.S. politics pushing the United States to disengage from international affairs.

The Ethics of the "Doorstep"

The "doorstep test" requires policymakers to be able to articulate how, and to what degree, something happening in the world connects to the day-to-day experience, needs, and interests of the citizenry. This construct requires honesty and reminds us that domestic policy and foreign policy ought to be linked.

Malaysian & Indonesian Elections, with Meredith Weiss & Jeremy Menchik

This fascinating conversation begins with a discussion of the critical importance of Southeast Asia, including the rise of China and its ambitions in the region. Then Professor Weiss focuses on Malaysia and the return of the formidable 93-year old Mahathir as prime minister. Next, Professor Menchik discusses the complex situation in Indonesia--a country with 17,000 islands and 300-plus ethnic groups--and the upcoming elections there.
