The Centre for Governance and Citizenship (CGC) together with the Centre for Religious and Spirituality Education (CRSE) of the Hong Kong Institute of Education,and the Institute of Sino-Christian Studies jointly held a public lecture on Global Ethic and Global Economy, to be conducted by Dr. Stephan Schlensog on 5 May 2010 (Wednesday), 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, at Room D1-LP-04, Tai Po Campus. We have also invited Mr. Stephen Wong (Part-time Lecturer of the Master of Social Science in Global Political Economy Programme, CUHK) and Prof. Laurance Splitter (Department of International Education and Lifelong Learning, HKIEd) as respondents to Dr. Schlensog's presentation.

In this lecture Dr. Stephan Schlensog, Secretary General of the Global Ethic Foundation (Tuebingen/Germany) and as close collaborator of the Foundation’s President Dr. Hans Küng, will present the Global Ethic Project and its importance for the Global Economy.
 
Dr. Schlensog commented that "In today’s worldwide financial crisis many people have lost not only a lot of money but also their trust in the global financial system. Or, as the Harvard Business Review has written: ‘Trust in Business is running out!’. Many experts worldwide say that we are living through a moral crisis as well as a financial one. And one of the fundamental lessons of this crisis should be the need for a Global Economic Ethic – a common fundamental vision of what is legitimate, just, and fair – which relies on a Global Ethic, i.e. on moral principles and values that from time immemorial have been shared by all cultures and religions."
