‘Ethics Olympiad-2023’, first of its kind in the country, was held with the participation of over 100 students at Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (AUST) in Dhaka on Saturday.
Ethics Education for Sustainable Development (E2SD), in association with Divine and Humanitarian Service (DAM) and NABIC, arranged the event. More than 100 students from 20 secondary schools of Dhaka under the E2SD initiative joined the event simultaneously.
The function was also featured with creative issues including poetry recitation, monologues, and music competitions with a theme song and documentary exhibition.
Speaking on the occasion, AUST Vice Chancellor Muhammad Fazli Ilahi said that only academic activities can’t make a student an ethically good human being. Those participating in the Olympiad would be able to share their ethical knowledge with others and this is the motive behind organising the event.
Dr. Mizanur Rahman, former chairman of Bangladesh Humanitarian Commission delivered his welcome speech.
Dr. Manjur Ahmed, emeritus Professor of BRACU, MA Muhit, double Everest conqueror, Dr. M. Ehsanur Rahman, former executive director of Dhaka Ahsania Mission, Dr. Munir Hasan, deputy editor of Prothom Alo, Md. Khabir Uddin Khan, chairman of Swan Group, Prof Dr. Md.
