Origin of Essay Question
From climate change, to terrorism, to global financial crises, many of the greatest problems facing us in the 21st century transcend national borders. All involve ethical issues, such as fairness, rights, and responsibilities.
So as part of the Council’s three-year Centennial project, “Ethics for a Connected World,” the Carnegie Council is asking thought leaders around the world to identify the greatest ethical questions facing the planet and how individuals, organizations, and countries should respond.
But the project would not be complete without input from students and teachers like you.
What do you think? What is the world’s greatest challenge, and how does it affect both your local community and the world? What are the ethical issues involved and how can we work together to overcome this problem?
