Our aim is to bring together the ethical approaches and frameworks from various cultural backgrounds and traditions, to organize an intercultural ethical dialogue, especially on (but not limited to) technology and its social and cultural implications.

This two-day event, hosted from the University of Twente in The Netherlands, will help us explore the value and challenges of an intercultural ethical approach to the profound implications of technology for human beings and societies.

We hope to reach out to scholars in intercultural philosophy, intercultural ethics, and the ethics and philosophy of technology to have an inspiring and constructive conversation.
