Do these all mean the same thing or something different? Can you have one without the others?

  • December: Moral CVs


    This is where you are invited, in December of 2015, to publish your personal manifesto, or Moral CV, taking inspiration from based on all of the discussions we have had on this website. Form and structure is entirely your choice, but I am happy to provide some guidance as well. Please feel free to work on a draft throughout the year (as is recommended), and if you are ready, please also reveal who you are at this time. Feel free to comment on each other's CVs with words of encouragement, or point out areas that could use more work. Moral CVs are never set in stone, rather it is the act of building and continually rebuilding them that ultimately makes moral people.
