Our world is becoming more interdependent. What happens in one part of the world affects lives in other parts. CO2 emissions, infections, financial integration, nuclear leaks and several similar dynamics have significant global consequences. These dynamics are pushing us together and intermixing our destinies.
Our increasing global interdependence means, among other things, that our lives are no longer solely authored by us, but are being co-authored with others. In order to navigate our increasing interdependence, we need global civics. We need to decide what sort of rapport we wish to have with the billions of others with whom we share our planet and destinies, but not our citizenship.
The Global Civics Academy offers a free online course to people around the world who are curious about the dynamics of global interdependence and our choices to manage this interdependence.
