Save the Date! Global Ethics Day, October 17, 2018

THE FIFTH ANNUAL GLOBAL ETHICS DAY WILL BE ON OCTOBER 17, 2018.
#globalethicsday2018

Global Ethics Day is a global teach-in and an opportunity for institutions to explore the role of ethics in a globalized world.

Inspired by Earth Day and founded by Carnegie Council as part of its Centennial activities in 2014, it provides an opportunity for organizations around the world to hold events on or around this day.

We encourage institutions everywhere to use Global Ethics Day to hold programs focusing on ethics, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, panel discussions, or activities to help the environment. 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.

Popular topics include ethics in business, the environment, ethics in the classroom, personal values, democracy, and human rights. What is the ethical issue that matters most to you? For more ideas and thousands of resources, visit Carnegie Council's online education and multimedia collections. Questions about Global Ethics Day? Contact Madeleine Lynn: mlynn@cceia.org.

Over 60 organizations and individuals from 31 countries on five continents took part in Global Ethics Day 2017. From the Gambia to Nicaragua to Romania, everyone celebrated in their own way. To see what people did last year, click here.

Join us. Together, let's work to make ethics matter.
