“Think global, act local” is a phrase often thrown about when organizations adopt what they believe to be a global citizenship mentality. But what does that mean? Better understanding the impact of our actions in a global context requires stretching our knowledge of adversities we can’t even imagine, let alone experience.
Keynote speaker, former banker, and future focused thought leader Adel El-Huni shares a story of deep learning that has come from straddling two worlds—the Middle East and the American Midwest. He is joined onstage by performance artists who open our senses in ways that deepen listening around what it takes to engender global citizenship in ourselves and others.
