The President’s Ethics Initiative began in 2013. It was an invitation to Irish people to explore ethical values and the role they have in shaping society, with a view to making society better for all. It involved higher education institutes and civil society organisations. Over 60 events were held, including lectures, seminars, conferences, activities and ‘citizens conversations’. On1 February 2016 the President launched the report. It is called The Importance of Ethics, The President of Ireland Ethics Initiative. It is available on the President’s website.
