What does it mean to be globally aware and why is it important?

In one of of the school programs I attended to last year, I was asked what it means to be globally aware and its importance. The question seemed to be quite easy, but I could not come up with a great answer. Trying to think of the best examples of being globally aware, I was lost.

TED is one of the most global communities out there and I believe it can help me understand the meaning and importance of global awareness.

    Aug 5 2013: IN MY VIEW: being globally aware is to know all that is to know about the world we live in such that we make right choices. I think this sort of access of information is very valuable but the condition is we should be in a state to utilize it. Its importance is related with our own ability. Hence the question we need to ask should be: are we capable of making the right choices if we have such access.
