The Only Way is Ethics – Glasgow’s 8-Day Festival

    Project information

  • What: 

    The festival has a firmly ‘green’ perspective and a strong focus on social responsibility, social inclusion and animal rights. The aim is to generate

    a city-wide conversation, by asking the question, ‘How can ethical thinking make Glasgow a better place for all?’.

  • Who: Murray Associates, Glasgow Caledonian University, Scott Savage and many other partners.
  • When: 29 November – 6 December 2015
  • Where: Glasgow, United Kingdom.


The festival is open to all those who want to see a more ethical world, and is a forum where different points of view are welcomed and respected. Genuine progress can be made through open-minded, positive engagement between all sections of society. The festival provides a space for that to happen. This year, the festival is working with four charities, which represent the programme’s four main areas of focus: The Environment, Social Responsibility, Social Inclusion and Animal Rights.

Beneficiaries & Stakeholders:

The festival is open to all those who want to see a more ethical world.
