Business Ethics

ethical principles

Young people are the employers, employees, and community activists of the future and EthCo hopes to embed a global perspective for the longer term. They, along with their teachers and their communities, hold the key to implementing actions which impact on the Millennium Development Goals. It is hoped that their energy and hope for the future may be harnessed, and their actions and attitudes affected, by learning how ethical companies operate.

Ethical Exchange will provide approaches and materials within a ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ to link together Development Education, Enterprise Education, Financial awareness, understanding of business, citizenship education, education for sustainable development, and other cross-cutting themes. These are brought together in the EthCo interdisciplinary tasks and, since the tasks contribute to many of the learning outcomes in the curricular areas of CfE, can be built in as part of the on-going curriculum.
