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.

A publishing house open to all the authors interested in applied ethics and with over 150 publications in 14 series
Online and offline courses and training for all on ethics both as a subject and within specific sectors
A global network made of experts and institutions to exchange organised in to specialised interest
Globethics.net has developed four programmes to support integrating ethics in institutions and to enable teachers, students, and those in the professions to make values-based decisions and to apply ethics in their day-to-day work and studies.
