In 2014, the Carnegie Council created Global Ethics Day as an opportunity to explore ethics in an increasingly globalized world. Global Ethics Day is an annual moment to empower ethics through the actions of individuals and organizations. It takes place on the third Wednesday of every October.

Global Ethics Day provides an opportunity to explore the meaning of ethics in daily life and for communities around the world to come together to identify and address the most critical issues facing society – from global pandemics, attacks on democracy, refugee crises, racial injustice, climate change, and more.
