Time: 12:00pm - 1:30pm ET

At Carnegie Council, we believe that cooperation is an essential virtue in the pursuit of an ethical life. And yet, it seems that cooperation is often absent from public life today. If we don’t take steps to enhance cooperation—both in our personal lives and collectively as a society—there is little hope of addressing shared global challenges such as climate change, AI, political violence, and more.

Carnegie Council invites you to join the keynote event for Global Ethics Day 2023 featuring Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal in conversation with Erez Yoeli, research scientist and co-director of MIT Sloan’s Applied Cooperation Initiative, and additional panelists to be announced soon. 

Together, they will explore key questions, including: 

  • What is the psychology behind cooperation and how can we motivate individuals to act cooperatively? 
  • What role can states, institutions, NGOs, and businesses play in helping to foster greater international cooperation?
  • How can we create the conditions for enhanced cooperation to tackle global challenges such as climate change, AI, the refugee crisis, etc.?
