Building a Global Network for Sustainable Responsibility – the Lucerne Summer University: Ethics in a Global Context LSUE

Ethics Summer University Global UNESCO Digitalization Human rights Global inequality poverty Artificial intelligence Biomedicine Climate change Global justice

Who is responsible for climate protection? What can be done against global inequality and poverty? How can global justice be connected with local traditions, cultural diversity and religious values? How can human rights be ethically justified as universal norms? What ethical chances and risks arise from the digital transformation and the growing use of artificial intelligence?

"The Lucerne Summer University: Ethics in a Global Context LSUE" under the patronage of the UNESCO enables young students to examine ethical questions of today and tomorrow – beyond the boundaries of academic fields, cultures and religion – and to search together for solutions in a global context.

This practical and action-oriented dialog is ideal to nurture a constantly expanding, international network of committed decision makers who exchange knowledge, advise each other and work together. The guiding principle of this endeavor is "Know how, act now".

LSUE-Faculty

The Faculty is interdisciplinary and international. It is practice-oriented and brings together experts from international organizations, science and research, business, the arts, and interreligious and transcultural dialogue:
