2nd Annual Global Ethics Day - Streaming Live - Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs - Friday, October 16, 2015

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is celebrating their 2nd Annual Global Ethics Day, Friday, October 16, 2015.  As part of its Centennial, the Council is working on a multi-year project to explore the concept of a global ethic: how shared ethical and moral values can be incorporated into action to confront international challenges.  "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 explaining how the idea of a Global Ethics day came about. To listen to a 10-minute audio with Dr. Rosenthal and Senior Fellow/Senior Program Director Devin Stewart, discussing the concept of Global Ethics Day, click here.
