Crossing borders for a better future
Environmental problems have the tendency to cross borders, following airways, waterways, groundwater flows, animals migrating, but also human transport systems. And still, even in the European Union, every country has its own policy, speaks its own language, people live their separate lives. How are we going to be able to deal with environmental problems crossing borders if we keep the borders alive, if we are not used to working together if only on a very high abstract level of politics. To really solve environmental problems, or other problems that have the tendency to not keep itself to one country, we have to learn to work together. And concerning environmental (and other) worldwide problems, we also have to develop a natural and critical approach, so we are able to distinguish fake news from real problems and learn how to solve them using scientific ways. All of these skills and more are taught to students who are involved in the Globe Exchange Program: Crossing borders for a better future.
