About this event

The world today is more turbulent, more polarized, and more at-risk than in decades. Paradoxically, the many existential threats to our universe—natural and manmade—require global collaboration if we have any chance of success. How, then, should we think about the concept of “global” today?  What do we need to do to create a more collective vision of the world that will lead to a greater commitment to our mutual responsibilities?
