The International Environment Forum is now a partner of the Global Ethics Forum, a project of the Geneva-based Foundation and its global digital ethics library. As partners we would like to invite you as members of IEF to participate in the forthcoming Conference of the Global Ethics Forum taking place in Geneva, Switzerland from 30 June to 1 July 2011.

Online registration is now open for the Geneva Conference 2011. Registration closes on 21 June 2011. IEF members receive a special partner rate.

The Geneva Conference 2011 of the Global Ethics Forum brings together participants from the public and private sector, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, governments, academic institutions and individuals under the theme: The Value of Values in Business: Global Perspectives, Practical Solutions. Over 50 world class speakers will guide discussions during the two days of workshop sessions at the International Conference Centre Geneva with closing and opening plenaries at the United Nations Office at Geneva (Palais des Nations).

The Global Ethics Forum project 2011-2013, with its focus on business ethics, builds on the success of the 2009 Conference that took place at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland from 2 to 3 July 2009.  The Global Ethics Forum project is not just an annual event but an ongoing process involving four activities: events, research, exchange and documentation. The goals of the project include providing opportunities for multi-stakeholder dialogue with a number of partners to provide innovative practical solutions to problems faced by the business community and by the wider community in relation to corporate responsibility. More information is available on the project here, including links to the registration pages, the latest version of the programme and the list of partners.
