Practical Ethics and Responsibility Competition

Welcome to the Uehiro Centre’s Practical Ethics and Responsibility competition!

"How am I responsible for the environment? Should there be limits on how we can punish people who do wrong? If very ill patients want to die, should doctors be held responsible if they help them? Who is responsible for the global spread of infectious diseases?" 

If these and other questions about our responsibilities towards each other, our planet and our future make you think, then this competition is for you!

At the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics we think a lot about responsibility and how we can all do more to tackle some of the biggest ethical problems facing us today.

The 2021 competition has now closed, and we were delighted to have received so many thoughtful and well put together videos. The top four finalists were invited to take part in our Schools' Day as part of our Festival of Arguments and you can see the four winning videos plus eight Highly Commended videos on the Schools' day pages.   

If you are interested in taking part in the competition next year, watch this space! In the meantime feel free to use the resources to explore different aspects of practical ethics. 

The Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics is grateful to Schools Outreach Co-ordinator Wedad Rattab, and to an advisory group of teachers for supporting this event.
