- U.S. Summit for Global Citizen Diplomacy, Washington D.C.
- A delegation of students from Adelphi participated in the U.S. Summit for Global Citizen Diplomacy in Washington, D.C. Together with leaders from government, civil society, and business (from 41 nations around the world), they will discuss and debate many of today’s most pressing global challenges. Giving a voice to the next generation of emerging global citizens and leaders, our AU students will help bring to the table the important thoughts and concerns of the Millennials.
- Presenting their own original research on citizen diplomacy and global civil society, our delegates will offer a fresh perspective on international affairs and will help evolve traditional models of global problem-solving. In roundtable discussions, taskforce presentations, and workshops, they will have the opportunity to collaborate across sectors and borders to develop 21st century proposals for promoting greater international understanding and cooperation through citizen engagement.
