An Ethical Compass for the Digital Age

March 15th-17th, 2018, Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice (CAPP) Foundation and Fordham University co-sponsored a conference with the theme “An Ethical Compass for the Digital Age”. The goal of the conference was to define, in practical terms, the role of ethics and Catholic Social Teaching in today’s economy. Business and professional leaders gathered together with academic economists and experts on Catholic Social Teaching to discuss the topic in depth. They discussed the role of data, communication in media, and a responsibility to the common good. The conference ended with the presentation of a draft framework on how the Church can respond to ethical issues of the digital age, with a focus on consumer ownership of data, possible regulations, and conversations around digital ethics. The results of this conference can prompt conversation and action within Catholic populations throughout the world.
