We live in a time when the advance toward a more connected, united, understanding world feels in peril. Has globalization gone too far too fast? And what could we do — together — about it? Some voices are demanding a retreat to insular nations battling for their own interests. But most of the big problems we face are collective in nature and global in scope. #UnityBuilding #2017ADA
