Global Ethics Forum

The GEF is a global, solution-focused, multisectoral and multistakeholder platform for dialogue, networking, and engagement, convening institutions, policymakers, senior experts, and practitioners from the private sector, higher education, governments, multilateral, nongovernmental, and faith-based organizations, among others.

Global Ethics Forum

The Forum is an open framework for values-driven inspiration, exchange, reflection, networking, and action, coping with the current global agenda and related ethical challenges and solutions. Through in-depth discussions, shared experiences, case studies, and evidence-based documentation and policy recommendations, innovative ideas, groundbreaking initiatives, and impactful coalitions are generated to put ethical leadership at the heart of the global and sectoral governance.

Values-driven exchange and reflection

The Global Ethics Forum (GEF) is one of Globethics' flagship events, with six global conferences organised between 2009 and 2016, five in Geneva, Switzerland, and one in Bangalore, India.

The GEF 2024 will take place from 2 - 4 September 2024 at Maison de la Paix in Geneva.

What makes the GEF unique?

  • Global reach: The GEF gathers leaders and future leaders from all continents, ensuring inputs from different world regions.
  • Values-based engagement: GEF offers a value-driven framework to think about the world challenges and opportunities, which approach is essential to complement the political and private sector ones.
  • Solution-focused: The GEF provides the space to share about successful initiatives, and encourages networking to create new ones. The Youth Leadership Award, that is part of the Forum, will highlight the capacity of youth in bringing innovative solutions to today’s challenges.
  • Inclusive leadership though: GEF is an inclusive space, ensuring the representation and active participation of women, youth, and usually unheard voices such as minorities and indigenous people.
  • Cross-sectorial and multistakeholder approach: The GEF believes that responsible leadership concerns all sectors and societal actors. The Forum makes it a point to include actors from different sectors, including higher education, civil society, religious indigenous communities, business, and politics, and facilitate cross-cutting and multistakeholder dialogues.
