Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable :Educate, Go Local, And Collaborate!

Few months ago in a seminar that I’ve attended, I heard a lecturer say, “Disaster becomes a disaster when there are humans involved in it.” Several earthquakes and volcano eruptions happen every day around the world, and it seems that only few of them receive a true public spotlight. Always, news of earthquakes and volcano eruptions happen to have thousands of civilian casualties, with its number increasing as media’s live coverage continues day by day. Have we ever paid attention on natural…

Desperately Seeking Metaphors for Global Civics

Less than one week ago, heads of state from 195 countries passed the Paris Agreement – a legally binding international agreement on climate – with the aim of limiting the global temperature rise to below 2°C. This agreement represents, quite possible, the world’s best answer to the most widespread global challenge we face in this century. Global warming renders national borders meaningless, as world leaders recognize our shared destiny and collective responsibility…

[This article was first published in the World Section of the Huffington Post on 21 October 2015.]

By Jesica L. Santos*

22 October 2015

On 25 October, Argentinians will go the polls to elect their next democratic president who, for the first time since 2003, won't have "Kirchner" as a last name. But the choice Argentinians will really be making concerns not an individual but, rather, the type of country they want to recover.

The parallels of euthanasia to the autonomy of the individual and their implications for Global Justice

The arguments made here are an extension of a broader paper that aimed (unsuccessfully) to discuss the issue of euthanasia from the perspective of three different ethic theories (Peter Singer, Immanuel Kant, Consequentialist) and relate it to global ethics and the question of global justice. The hope is that this paper is able to provide those linkages and provoke some discussion around the direction of global justice.    

 

The question of ethics in regards to…

We should come to see climate change as the national security issue it really is

It's a fact of life. Unless it's at your doorstep, it's not a priority.

I wonder if after Sandy's rage last week there's still doubt that climate change is a national security issue? The super storm was caused by the warm up of the Caribbean.

See, Sandy's punch doesn't need to feel warm in order to be a product of global warming.

It's time that policy makers came to see climate change and global warming as the national security issues they really are. This realization…

The killing of George Floyd is another tragic moment in the long and painful history of racism in America. We feel the anger that arises from this assault on human decency. We hear the cries for action. The Council stands in solidarity with the millions of citizens who are raising their voices demanding change. Carnegie Council's motto is Ethics matter. We believe Black Lives Matter.
