The International Year of Global Understanding
GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING SHOULD BE AN ESSENTIAL HUMAN CONDITION
Faced with global change, we need to think globally.
Local actions alter global processes.
Global understanding clarifies the connections between the local and the global.
Global thinking and global action demand global understanding. This initiative by the International Geographical Union aims to bridge the awareness gap between local acts and global effects. It will achieve this aim through research, education, and information.
Ultimately, the International Year of Global Understanding will encourage everyone to make daily decisions in the light of global challenges.
