Practical tools for ethical transformation through responsible leadership: this is the expected outcome of the Global Ethics Forum 2015. Leaders, experts and future leaders from civil society, business, government, religious and academic institutions will gather from 25-27 June in Geneva/Switzerland.

The theme of the 2015 Global Ethics Forum is: "Responsible Leadership in Action. The Value of Values." Over 50 speakers from all continents will share their experiences and solutions. Actions to be addressed at the 2015 Global Ethics Forum include:

An active part of the Globethics.net community, African academics, activists, religious, private sector and public leaders are at the forefront of this ethical transformation: Famous Human Rights Activist and development practitioner, Reverend Monsignor Professor Dr Obiora Ik (Nigeria) will discuss responsible resource management in religious organizations; Musimbi Kanyoro, President/CEO of the Global Fund for Women will give the keynote speech; Rev.Prof.Dr.Aidan G.Msafiri, Professor of Ethics in Tanzania will discuss youth unemployment; Dr. Naupess K. Kibiswa Chairman of the African Centre for Peace, Democracy, & Human Rights and the Société Civile Forces Vives (DR Congo) will contribute to further the exchange on ethics in political elections and the civil society, and many others are involved.

"Responsible Leadership requires responsiveness to our values, our inner compass for actions, and to the effect of our actions on the world around us" said Professor Dr. Christoph Stückelberger, the Executive Director and Founder of Globethics.net
