You’re Invited! Humanitini “World House: Fostering a Global Citizen” October 16th

September 25, 2014

World House, MLK Quote Join us for Humanitini, our monthly think ‘n drink! We’ll discuss the role of travel, communications, and ethics in shaping today’s global citizen. Humanitini: World House will be held on October 16 at 6:30 p.m. at The Coupe (3415 11th St NW). We’ll also explore the meaning of global citizenship in an international city like DC. Our panelist Elizabeth Ogunwo is a former Peace Corps volunteer.

Background

In 1967, Martin Luther King embraced a vision of Americans as dwellers in a “world house” of international neighbors; “a world-wide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one’s tribe, race, and class.” In the 21st century, what are the implications of global citizenship?

To start thinking about these issues, have a look at the short reading and questions on our Human Ties blog and leave us your comments!

RSVP for Humanitini: World House on October 16. Let’s start a global dialogue!
