President’s Ethics Initiative

President Michael D. Higgins announced an initiative for nationwide debate in 2014 to stimulate greater awareness of  Ethics. The initiative will involve over 50 events. These will include academic workshops and public lectures. The intention is to start with events in third level colleges , and then to spread out the debate into the wider society.  He hopes the initiative will help ‘enable us to build a sustainable social economy and a society which is profoundly ethical and inclusive’ (See ‘Nationwide debate on ethics begins’, Patsy McGarry Irish Times 15 February 2014. See also President’s website for details of events )
