Carnegie Council Receives Grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York to Promote Ethics through Global Education

Apr 6, 2015

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. The Council will use this award to advance its position as the leading global provider of educational resources and public programs on ethics in international affairs.

"As we enter our second century, this grant will help us build upon the accomplishments produced by Carnegie Corporation's prior support of the Council," said Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal. "In 2014—our Centennial year—Carnegie Council served an audience of nearly 50 million people across the globe through public programs, a public television series, and a variety of media products, such as podcasts and e-books. Our vision is to bring the best scholarship on ethics and international affairs directly to everyone worldwide, through their smartphones, laptops, and TVs."

Carnegie Corporation's support will:

(1) Sustain the Council's public programming as the organization deepens its involvement around seven core ethical themes: Corruption and Trust, Environment and Growth, Citizenship and Difference, War and Reconciliation, Technology and Risk, Democracy and its Challengers, and Leadership and Ethics.

(2) Add additional focus areas.

(3) Enlarge the Global Ethics Network, the Council's worldwide educational initiative.

"Our vision is to bring the best scholarship on ethics and international affairs directly to everyone worldwide, through their smartphones, laptops, and TVs."

Carnegie Council provides a forum free from any particular ideology and examines the most pressing issues of our time—from climate change to corruption and from migration to technology. The Council's goals are to encourage participatory democracy by engaging the public in a conversation about global ethics, and to generate new nonpartisan educational materials on international affairs in the form of articles, interviews, transcripts, podcasts, and videos.

Founded by Andrew Carnegie in 1914 and based in New York City, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is an educational, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization. For more information, visit www.carnegiecouncil.org

Carnegie Corporation of New York was established in 1911 by Andrew Carnegie to promote the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding. In keeping with this mandate, the Corporation's work focuses on the issues that Andrew Carnegie considered of paramount importance: international peace, the advancement of education and knowledge, and the strength of our democracy.
