Intergenerational Ethics Event
What is the moral significance of naming and renaming public buildings? Does wealth allow people to make more ethical choices? Is it ever appropriate for a school to implement policies that directly contradict parents’ values and preferences?
PLATO is joining the University of Washington Retirement Association (UWRA) for our first event to bring together UWRA members and local high school students in a facilitated, interactive forum. We will gather in person in small, mixed-age groups with a discussion leader to explore an ethical issue.
We believe ethics and philosophy are for everyone. We hope to provide the resources and space for people of all ages to engage together with some of life’s deepest questions. In a world increasingly spatially and socially segregated by age, it is more important than ever to do so in an intergenerational way.
Local high school students are encouraged to register soon as space is limited. We are really looking forward to what we hope will be the first of many such events.
