SIETAR India's 4th Annual Conference in Chennai
"Intercultural solutions for a Sustainable World"
We all hope that our kids will have a better life than we have, but more and more people now doubt this will be true: climate change, exhaustion of critical natural resources, excessive pollution due to unchecked energy consumption, rise of intolerance, lack of food for a growing population, etc. The world needs a paradigm shift in the way we understand and manage these issues. As interculturalists we have a role to play in making this shift happen as these issues need to be tackled globally and we understand what can bring different people together. Most of us spend our time helping companies create sustainable cross border collaboration with commercial partners or within virtual projects teams. Others work at creating sustainable educational partnerships for the next generation of students to be more understanding of the different cultures they will be working with. How can we use this expertise to give the future generations a chance of living in a world that is at least as beautiful as the one we live in? This is what this conference offers to explore.
