Globethics.net marks #GlobalEthicsDay2015

We joined proposing educational material and by sharing information of others who joined the Global Ethics Day 2015.

Globethics.net is joining nearly 60 ethics-related organisations from around the world in support of the second Global Ethics Day on Friday 16 October 2015.

"I welcome this important initiative, which shares our vision of not only addressing ethical issues from an academic point of view but also in a collaborative way at a practical level", comments by Prof. Dr Christoph Stückelberger, Executive Director and Founder, Globethics.net.

Dr Stückelberger continues, "Our main theme at Globethics.net this year is Responsible Leadership and on the occasion of Global Ethics Day 2015, I encourage you to take a look at one of the lectures in the Globethics Academy series on Responsible Leadership,Ethical Challenges in the Public Service (register for free to access the lectures), by Joan Dubinsky (Board member of Globethics.net and Former Chief Ethics Officer of the United Nations). Also, our newest publication in the Global Series ‘Sustainable Ethics: Ecology, Economy and Ethics' shows how ecology, economy and ethics are all needed to reach the Sustainable Development Goals recently adopted by the United Nations. Join us in supporting Global Ethics Day to continue to take forward the value of values globally."  

Global Ethics Day is a project of the US based Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs inaugurated in 2014 during its centennial celebrations. The idea of the day, as conceived by the Carnegie Council, is to engage the global constituency of ethics practitioners as well as the general public on issues of ethics in international affairs. It was launched basically as an educational programme with practical outcomes around the topic of how shared ethical and moral values can be incorporated into action to confront international challenges.

Our regional office Globethics.net Turkey also participated in the Global Ethics Day by organising a roundtable with the members of TEID (Ethics and Reputation Society). Ethics and compliance officers attended the event.

The Global Ethics Day was celebrated during the October edition of the Hidiv Palace roundtables on the comparative study of international laws on anti-corruption (FCPA, UK Bribery Act and Brazil’s Clean Company Law). Twitter hashtags have been created on this occasion “#DünyaEtikGünü” and “#GlobalEthicsDay”. An informative card has been distributed with the quote “Love means never having to bribe someone to stay” with the logos of TEID and Turkish Integrity Center of Excellence (TICE). The message was also sent out in a newsletter to more than 2700 people.

Generation Z makes up over 30 percent of the world's population and this group of people, most under the age of 20, are already having an extraordinary effect on society, culture, and politics.

How can they turn their energy into concrete action?

The Power of Tribalism, with Amy Chua & Walter Russell Mead

"In our foreign policy, for at least half a century, we have been spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics," says Amy Chua, author of "Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations." What does this mean in 2019? How can Americans move past tribalism? Don't miss this conversation with Chua and Bard College's Walter Russell Mead, moderated by Bard's Roger Berkowitz.

Climate Change, Intergenerational Ethics, & Political Responsibility, with Stephen Gardiner

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?
