      Climate change connects us all – the magnitude of its effects on the interdependency between the global environment and human society may jeopardize our survival as a species in the not-too-distant future. And yet efforts to mitigate the looming risk of climate change are often uncoordinated and conflicting, differing from country to country and industry to industry. What does it mean to be a Global Citizen in the face of this reality? This panel will discuss how we can use interdependence of our own to counter the threat that climate change poses and the role that Global Citizenship can – and should – play in tackling this vital issue.

      Imperatives of Leadership for Business and Society with Spotlight speaker Emma Sky

      Corporations can embrace global citizenship just as individuals do, but while this can lead to great positive impact, it also comes with its own challenges. How do businesses continue to drive innovation and global economic growth while preserving the climate, protecting human rights, and ensuring that the most vulnerable are not left behind?

      This panel will bring together business and economics leaders to discuss how corporations are incorporating global citizenship into their strategy and highlight global challenges where the business community can and should play a greater role in ensuring a sustainable future.

      Immediately following the panel, Emma Sky will deliver closing remarks and answer questions. Emma Sky is director of Yale's Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program and a Senior Fellow at the Jackson Institute, where she teaches Middle East politics.
