Global Citizens Engaging Local Communities”

Whether you love to travel the globe or prefer to never leave your neighborhood, there is no denying we live in local communities in an increasingly interconnected world.  From politics and arts to academia and business, the world has come to our doorsteps. But how does this reality impact communities, cultures, and individuals? We invite you to engage in a conversation with Yale alumni and local leaders whose work and lives are redefining the meaning of community and what it means to be a global citizen.
