Ethics and its importance in society
Contact: Ryan O'Brian
Tuesday, August 15, 2006 – The importance of ethics in day to day living was emphasised as the National Community Foundation (NCF) staged the second annual Brian Bernard Memorial Lecture at the National Insurance Corporation Conference room at the weekend.
Lecturer, Madame Justice Suzie D'Auvergne in her presentation stressed the importance of ethics in the avoidance of serious negative consequences on the well being of others when exercising the necessary discipline required as members of society.
“Personal ethics relates to human behaviour in relation to others. It therefore has importance for personal conduct and attitude in our day to day lives. As individuals, we develop a myriad of relationships be it in the family, community, the church, club, other organisations. In each of these areas, there is need to understand how our behaviour can have both positive and negative effects on others,” she said.
The Brian Bernard Memorial Fund was established on August 12 2004, in honour of his contribution to humanity. It is being administered by the National Community Foundation and focuses on enforcing and/or enhancing ethical behaviour and human Christian values.
