Event description

Description

"For the first time in 5,000 years, the whole world needs to work together to get the whole planet in order. Issues like climate change, cyber threats, terrorism, trafficking, slavery, pandemics or nuclear threats can only be solved if countries closely cooperate. This contains also some good news: reality demands that we overcome our differences. The current trend, however, is in the opposite direction towards nationalism, protectionism and xenophobia. And the only leaders who can actually fix the planet are the ones elected to defend the self-interest of their country.”

VGen presents Evert-Jan Ouweneel to Macquarie on 24th August. Evert-Jan is a Dutch philosopher and Senior Advisor to World Vision and has generously made himself available to give an interactive talk to Vision Generation – World Vision’s youth advocacy movement - on global politics entitled “Who inspires in a perfect storm”. Ouweneel and VGen welcome VGenners and all young people to join this important conversation about global citizenship and civil society leadership in the modern post-Brexit and Trump era of nationalism.

Come down, bring a friend, and indulge your minds in an intellectually stimulating conversation (with light refreshments too!!).
