Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
Hello, everyone. My name is Mark Flanigan. I'm currently serving as Program Director with the Japan ICU Foundation (日本国際基督教大学財団) in New York City. I'm a former Tokyo-based Rotary International Peace Fellow, US Army Officer, Presidential Management Fellow (PMF) and Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme participant with a variety of proven experience in both the public and private sectors. Successfully obtained a U.S. Government security clearance in 2007 (Top-secret level: non-active.) Extensive record of work, study and travel abroad, which has given me a deeper understanding of Global Affairs and insight into different languages, people and cultures. Have lived in Japan, Mexico, Switzerland (as an intern with UN OCHA in Geneva) and Egypt and have traveled throughout the Asia-Pacific region, including Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Thailand, China, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar, Mongolia, Guam, Saipan and Taiwan. Looking for continued opportunities to build my professional network in the Asia-Pacific, international humanitarian and development fields, with government, education, international organizations and NGOs. I hope to learn as much as possible from everyone here in the Global Ethics Network.

What are some grassroots approaches?
