Get ready to hear world-class professionals from the spheres of academia, bio-tech, and international diplomacy discuss what it means to be a global citizen today.
In today’s world, one of the most important tools to cultivate is the ability to be a highly mobile being.
This doesn’t just mean to be able to move from place to place, but instead to understand how to adapt and succeed in every kind of environment.
Our world is now a highly globalized one where it is possible to connect with new cultures and people at record speeds. The United Nation’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs claims that globalization has been one of the facilitators to massive GDP growth worldwide - from 50 trillion USD in 2000 to 75 trillion in 2016 (United Nations, 2017).
While this new way of living is incredibly beneficial to the world’s networks, there are also obstacles that may stand in the way of constant growth. Since we are all citizens of the world, it is worthwhile to find out how we can utilize our frameworks for a better collective future.
