Would you like to go to a seminar with well-known speakers from the US, Sweden, UK and other countries, and then top it off with a discussion with participants from Sweden, Venezuela, South Africa, Canada and Austria?
Sounds like something you have to apply for and then travel a long way in order to participate in. But in this case it’s the wonders of technology that make a so-called Global Teach-In possible.
The idea is to gather people, interested in the big challenges the planet face today (climate change, economic crisis, democracy issues), in different countries and let them participate in the same event simultaneously. Some interactions will happen through the screen, some will be face to face.
