“Ethics in Action”

Carnegie Council’s Global Ethics Day takes place on the third Wednesday of every October. The seventh annual Global Ethics Day (#GlobalEthicsDay2020) will take place on October 21, 2020.

Inspired by Earth Day, Global Ethics Day provides an opportunity for organizations around the world to hold events on or around this day, exploring the meaning of ethics in international affairs — and to share your #GlobalEthicsDay2020 activities widely on social media.
