What is Global Ethics Day?

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 in 2014 as part of its Centennial activities, 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 protect 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.
