Description/Abstract

You didn’t look the other way; you walked right on forward, turning what you know into what you can do. You prepared your selves for the challenges of this world by learning in it – for you, the pressing issues of our time are not just “academic” – they are real. You know what we must do to turn our schools, our neighborhoods, our environment, our health, our social conflicts, our economies around. You know what local-global resonance is all about, and you know the power of cultural diplomacy and the reach of the digital media. You know that it is all too easy to think you are connected, and ever so hard to cultivate true empathy of mind – the kind that entails making oneself vulnerable as you open up to others.
