As part of its Centennial, the Council is working on a multi-year project to explore the concept of a global ethic: how shared ethical and moral values can be incorporated into action to confront international challenges.

As part of this project, Carnegie Council is delighted to announce its second annual Global Ethics Day.

We encourage academic institutions around the world, including in our network, to use this day to hold events, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, panel discussions, or other educational activities to explore the quest for a global ethic. 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 your activities on its website and share any resources that are created among its Global Ethics Network. Course and lecture ideas can be found on Carnegie Council's website here. Carnegie Council's Ethics on Film series is also a great resource for teaching suggestions connected to popular movies.

"Our dream is that this becomes a global educational effort and that people come to learn from each other from all around the world," said Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal explaining how the idea of a Global Ethics day came about. To listen to a 10-minute audio with Dr. Rosenthal and Senior Fellow/Senior Program Director Devin Stewart, discussing the concept of Global Ethics Day,click here.

Over 50 institutions worldwide participated last year. To see the list, click 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 Alex Woodson at and let us add your name to the list!
