Carnegie Council announces its fourth annual Global Ethics Day (#globalethicsday2017) on October 18, 2017.
Inspired by Earth Day, Global Ethics Day provides an opportunity for organizations around the world to hold events on or around this day, exploring the meaning of ethics in international affairs.
We encourage academic institutions everywhere to use this opportunity to hold programs focusing on ethics, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, or panel discussions. We welcome your ideas. 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.
Carnegie Council will promote Global Ethics Day activities on its online community platform www.globalethicsnetwork.org and share any resources that are created. Course and lecture ideas can be found on Carnegie Council's website here.
If you plan to hold a Global Ethics Day event, please let us know so we can promote it along with other events happening that day. Please contact Billy Pickett at email@example.com and let us add your name to the list!
We encourage you to post information about your event directly on this site. Please tag it with #globalethicsday2017.
Over 50 institutions from 15 countries participated in 2016. From Germany to Brazil to Australia to Oman, universities, non-profit institutions, and civil society groups participated with teach-ins, art projects, and film screenings, covering a wide range of ethical issues.
