We’re All Connected: The Importance of Global Literacy
By The Aspen Institute
As we’ve seen with the coronavirus pandemic and anti-racism protests — distance no longer means much. What started in a Chinese city spread to the corners of the earth and what happened on the streets of Minneapolis launched action around the globe. We live in a global era and what happens thousands of miles away can deeply affect our lives. Richard Haass, author of the new book The World: A Brief Introduction, says global literacy is a must this day in age because what happens outside a country matters enormously to what happens inside. He speaks with Jane Harman, president of the Woodrow Wilson Center, about his book and relevant contemporary issues.
