About us

Globethics.net is a global network of teachers and institutions with the vision to embed ethics in higher education. We strive for a world in which people, and especially leaders are educated in, informed by and act according to ethical values and thus contribute to building sustainable, just and peaceful societies. 
 
The founding conviction of Globethics.net is that having equal access to knowledge resources in the field of applied ethics enables individuals and institutions from developing and transition economies to become more visible and audible in the global discourse. 
 
In order to ensure access to knowledge resources in applied ethics, Globethics.net has developed  four resources
