The second Global Ethic Community Day

More than a year has passed since the first Global Ethic Community Day. On July 20, Global Ethic Ambassadors and Institute staff met at the Hotel Hermann in Münsingen to share their learning experiences. Where did the Global Ethic values and principles offer orientation? Which methods can support this? How are scientific search and learning processes related to social and societal developments? What difficulties were encountered in implementing values-based leadership in everyday life? Which thought-provoking impulses help to take into account the environment and the future – but also to secure the future of companies? And what are the similarities and differences between the Global Ethic Project and the Economy for the Common Good? These were all topics at the second Global Ethic Community Day.

The Community Day started at 10 a.m. with an interactive warm-up by Executive Director Dr. Bernd Villhauer, during which participants shared professional and personal insights into their experiences of the past year, discovering similarities as well as differences.
Afterwards, Institute Director Prof. Dr. Dr. Ulrich Hemel warmly welcomed the Ambassadors and presented new activities of the Global Ethic Institute, such as the current status of the Global Ethic Method Manual. So that it did not remain only theoretical, two methods (the method of weighing goods and the value clarification) were directly applied and discussed among the participants. The results of the discussion will find their way into the further development of the manual, which in the end should also make it easier for Ambassadors in the company to apply Global Ethic methods.

After a short break, Dr. Christopher Gohl gave an impulse lecture on the annual theme on “Global Ethic and Science-Enabled Democracy”, which asked under which conditions science can become a guiding star for political, economic and social search and learning processes as part of democratic self-knowledge and knowledge of the world.
