Wanderlust = A strong desire or urge to wander or travel and explore the world. But is ‘wandering the world’ a must in becoming a global citizen? And what does that mean for us as a student, lecturer and professional?
The world is changing, borders are fading and we’re all part of a global society. Our environment seems to be local, but how can we think and act global? Is wandering the world a must?
Lecturer Ethics & Global Citizenship Ruud Welten hosted our TEDxSaxionUniversitySalon titled ‘Wandermust’? He took us on a journey through different views and opinions on global citizenship and travelling. We watched a few talks from the TED community that challenged the audience perspective. We discussed topics such as life in a global society and the role of travelling in shaping us as a global citizen.
