The Global Ethics Forum is's flagship event, with six global conferences organised since 2009, five in Geneva, Switzerland and one in Bangalore, India. 
Its goal is to provide a platform for inspiration, exchange/reflection, networking and action in order to foster values-driven individuals and institutions across sectors. 
What makes the Global Ethics Forum a unique event is:
1. Its focus on solutions - we create projects together, which are implemented throughout the year (these projects are often carried out using our online workgroups);
2. Its global reach - we include leaders and future leaders from all continents, with a specific eye on including actors from developing countries; and
3. Its cross-sectorial approach - we believe responsible, values-driven leadership concerns all sectors. As such, we make it a point to include actors from different sectors, including higher education, religious organisations, business and politics. 
The 2016 Global Ethics Forum took place from 23 to 25 June in Geneva, Switzerland and focused on the topic "Ethics in Action - Higher Education: The Value of Values across Sectors". Please consult the GEF 2016 pages for more information.
