Ethical questions aren't just theoretical. From climate change to medical tourism to weaponized social media, real-world problem-solving and moral character development need a hands-on approach. Using tools from design and ethical theory, this workshop introduces a set of activities to develop students’ moral imagination and creative confidence. Participants will leave with tools and exercises that help students understand and tackle complex moral problems in their schools and communities.
