Our "global consciousness" is constantly changing. The ebb and flow of the issues that inform our behavior, politics, and philosophy are driven by a variety of factors, from the availability and timeliness of information to the constantly changing zeitgeists. This discussion explores the way we view ourselves in the context of this information. And if we are truly global citizens, what steps must we take to push the global consciousness towards peace and humanity?
Moderated by NBC News national and international correspondent Ann Curry. Introduction by Founding Director of the SU Humanities Center, Gregg Lambert.
