"Our dream is that Global Ethics Day becomes a global educational effort and that people come to learn from each other from all around the world."
(PRWEB) August 28, 2015
Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs announces its second annual Global Ethics Day on October 16, 2015.
The Council encourages academic institutions around the world to use this day to hold events, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, panel discussions, or another educational activity to explore the enduring importance of moral values as they relate to war, peace, and social justice.
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 website and share any resources that are created among its Global Ethics Network.
Check out Carnegie Council's online Education Section for ideas, such as Carnegie Council's Ethics on Film series, which is 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 about why the Council launched Global Ethics Day.
