We are witnessing (and living through) a schism of global proportions – archaic ways of the past that aggressively refuse to go away and mind-boggling ways of the future that are rushing forward refusing to slow down long enough to make sense. How do we bridge a gap between the mindsets of the past and the future that seems to get wider and wider? What about our intercultural bridges? Are they sustainable? This workshop facilitated in a format of a forum discussion will provide participants an opportunity to identify challenges and dilemmas of our profession in the moment of tectonic shifts that are shaking the world and reexamine our approach to intercultural bridge-building. Our goal is to ignite the collective wisdom of SIETARians in identifying strategies for staying relevant and making a positive impact on the challenges shaking and shaping the world today.
