About this class
Young people on all parts of the planet can be deprived of the chance to experience what it is like to grow up in one part and eventually find yourself in another part of the world where you are building a career for yourself. This is a problem that holds back a lot of human potential: the young minds that have the ability to belong to the wider world. To be versatile, adaptable and nimble are important to not just survive, but to thrive in a new place. This is what makes a global graduate.
Today, through the stories of three global graduates, we learn how they defeated the odds, took challenges and created opportunities for themselves. Through this global class, we want people to understand the importance of being part of the larger global world, of humanity as a whole, and having the ability to adapt not just to the challenges in the communities where they were born, but to the greater challenges on the planet that we all belong to and share.
Don Lovisa, President of Durham College, will be leading this class, giving us a glimpse of how three young people aspired to belong to the greater world and have become successful global graduates.
