What is ethical storytelling?

Today I dedicate this space to a subject I consider very important: ethical storytelling.
The inspiration came from a video from EarthRights International (ERI, here is the official website).
From the Youtube Channel description: A nongovernmental, nonprofit organization that combines the power of law and the power of people in defense of human rights and the environment, which we define as "earth rights." We specialize in fact-finding, legal actions against perpetrators of earth rights abuses, training grassroots and community leaders, and advocacy campaigns. Through these strategies, we seek to end earth rights abuses, to provide real solutions for real people, and to promote and protect human rights and the environment in the communities where we work.
I agree with the speakers’ message.
Synthesizing in a motto: we have to do it and we must do it well.
In a world where the evil storytelling, if I may call it like that, is wide spread and given with great knowledge of the medium, who wish to tell stories and so help changing things for better have to be smart and competent.
Good intentions are not enough.
Talent is the right basis buts so the way you use it.
In other words, you must give enough light to your good story, if you really want to fight the bad one.
