Creating Global Citizens
I recently returned from the International Camping Congress in Hong Kong.
Surrounded by my colleagues in the global camp community, I couldn’t help but ask: What if we could truly be Global Resource Partners for the camp community? What if we used our global wisdom to create a generation of global citizens?
Global citizens are those who are prepared to deliver a global promise — leaders who must address the vexing global problems facing our world today: global economy, climate changes, and the impact of technology on our world.
The best we can do is teach our kids to live with people of different cultures and languages, and to honor what Joseph Cornell called our “ancient community” — nature.
Like nature, the camp community is a complex, diverse, dynamic system that can use creative disorder to find new meaning. We can synthesize our intuition and our creativity to discover harmony.
