Globethics.net Programme on Ethics in Higher Education

Education is at the centre of the Globethics.net Strategy 2016-2020 with the aim to enable higher education institutions to equip the students of today to become the values-driven leaders of tomorrow.

This focus has grown out of discussions with Globethics.net partners and stakeholders -  students, teachers, researchers and heads of universities - during our Global Ethics Forum 2016 on Higher Education – Ethics in Action:  The Value of Values across Sectors. The Forum was an opportunity to talk about and find answers to the ethical challenges affecting the higher education sector.

As a result of the Forum the Globethics.net Ethics in Higher Education Programme has been established, including the convening of the Consortium of higher education institutions around ethics.
