Why Young People Need Global Education

The 21st century brings with it unprecedented global uncertainty, interconnectedness, and unimaginable opportunity. Yet many students in the United States and around the world complete their formal education with insufficient tools to navigate this new world. This session examines some of the foundational skills, acquired through traditional and innovative means, that young people need to make sense of the world around them and drive forward in business, foreign policy, and our increasingly diverse communities.
