"What type of education will help us build a global civilization?" With Dr. Thomas Ponniah

Over the past six years we have watched far-right, anti-globalist, political parties and leaders become mainstream conservative leaders. There are numerous political and economic policies and approaches for confronting the current form of anti-globalism but in this presentation Dr. Ponniah will discuss how education can move individuals and society towards a more inclusive planetary vision. He will compare the classical conception of education with the current one and propose a third possibility that is more in line with Bahá'í principles.

( We recommend watching in full screen mode. )
