Welcome to the global seminar
The Global Seminar is a consortium of educational institutions concerned with crucial issues for the future of our planet.
We believe shared understandings that transcend national boundaries, cultures and backgrounds offer the best hope for a sustainable environment, worldwide health and a safe, secure food supply.
The Global Seminar is a learning community of students and faculty from around the world who study key global issues, simultaneously and interactively.
Fully interactive technology including live video conferences and interactive online labs support intellectual discussions among students, faculty and international leaders.
Global Seminar partners and participants comprise an international problem-solving team, addressing case studies of the highest order of importance for the survival of our planet.
Our goal is to prepare future leaders and citizens of the global community to articulate policy agendas that will lead to a sustainable environment, a high level of public health, and a stable and secure food supply. Our partners include academic, business, and government leaders.
