Join the Carnegie Council teach-in! As part of its Centennial activities, Carnegie Council is inaugurating a worldwide Global Ethics Day and encouraging academic institutions around the world to use this day to hold their own events.

It starts as a day, but that day may be like striking a match to a bonfire.--Ambassador Tibor Nagy, Texas Tech

As part of its its 2014 Centennial activities, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs has facilitated a multi-year exploration of a "global ethic."

These activities will culminate in a week of events in New York City this October 2014, including a day of workshops at City College of New York on Oct. 16, 2014, which we are designating as our inaugural Global Ethics Day.

Carnegie Council encourages academic institutions around the world to use this day to hold their own events, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, panel discussions, or another educational activity to explore a "global ethic" as well. In the tradition of a "teach-in" model, these events would be run by each institution as it sees fit while being part of a worldwide Global Ethics Day.

Carnegie Council will promote 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.

For those who plan to hold a Global Ethics Day event, please contact Jenna Zhang at jzhang(at)cceia(dot)org so that Carnegie Council can add it to the list!
