Global Ethics Day 2017
Globethics.net is joining the Global Ethics Day initiative established by the Carnegie Council, which has been held each year in October since its launch in 2014. Global Ethics Day provides an opportunity for organisations around the world to hold events on or around this day, exploring the meaning of ethics in international affairs.
This year Globethics.net is focusing on The Golden Rule, ‘treating others as you would like to be treated', as the theme for Global Ethics Day.
Did you know that The Golden Rule…
To mark this important day, we as an organisation will be sharing various stories and resources on the golden rule, such as:
The main drive behind Global Ethics Day is to get the wider public to engage with and reflect on ethics. We've reached out the international community in Geneva to ask them how they apply the golden rule in their a day-to-day lives. Read their stories here.
Don't miss our blogs which provide a personal narrative on the theme of the Golden Rule written by Globethics's staff.
Have Your Say
Although the Golden Rule might be overlooked sometimes today in our increasingly ideological and polarised societies there are many, including those in our Globethics.net family, who apply it on a daily basis.
We want to hear your stories and thoughts about how you consider and implement the Golden Rule in your day-to-day life, and how this simple method of consideration has helped establish and reinforce your own values.
Please send us your story and thoughts (max 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org or through Facebook or Twitter. We will share a selection of the best posts and stories that we receive with the world through our website and social networks to promote ethics and values for a better today and a better future.
Happy Global Ethics Day 2017!
