Global Ethic Census Welcomes Feedback
The Parliament of the World’s Religions’ signature document, Towards a Global Ethic: An Initial Declaration will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next year. The world has changed in many ways since “the Global Ethic” was first endorsed at the 1993 Parliament of the World’s Religions, and in the run-up to the anniversary celebrations we are asking anew: Who is “the Global Ethic” for? How does “the Global Ethic” foster interfaith collaboration and action? What must our timeless moral traditions now speak into 21st century realities?
All members of the public with a general interest in ethics are invited to partner with us in this important re-evaluation by taking the first-ever Global Ethic Census, now live on our website. It takes less than 5 minutes to complete, and familiarity with “the Global Ethic” is not necessary for answering the required questions.
A closing date for the Census will be announced later this year, at which time the responses will be analyzed by the Global Ethic Committee of the Parliament of the World’s Religions. Key insights that emerge from this analysis will be used to inform future programming of the Global Ethic Committee and (as appropriate) will be shared with the broader Parliament community. Representatives of the Parliament may reach out to individual respondents for follow-up questions and potential collaboration in the lead-up to the 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions.
