Join the discussion about Global Mobility with Key Note Speaker Dr. Parag Khanna (author of the book "MOVE"), followed by a panel discussion with the Ambassadors of Brazil, Chile, Germany, and Peru, moderated by Dr. Pablo Lizana, Honorary President of the Latin American Chamber of Commerce and Mr. Jens Rübbert, Honorary President of the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
This event is co-organized with the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
"In the 60,000 years since people began colonizing the continents, a recurring feature of human civilization has been mobility—the constant search for resources and stability. Seismic global events—wars and genocides, revolutions and plagues—have only accelerated the process. The map of humanity isn't settled—not now, not ever.
As climate change tips toward full-blown crisis, economies collapse, governments destabilize, and technology disrupts, we're entering a new age of mass migrations—one that will scatter both the dispossessed and the well-off. Which areas will people abandon and where will they resettle? Which countries will accept or reject them? As today's world population, which includes four billion restless youth, votes with their feet, what map of human geography will emerge?
MOVE provides an illuminating and authoritative vision of the next phase of human civilization—one that is both mobile and sustainable. In the years ahead people will move to where the resources are and technologies will flow to the people who need them, returning us to our nomadic roots while building more secure habitats. MOVE is a fascinating look at the deep trends shaping the most likely scenarios for the future. Most important, it guides each of us as we seek our optimal location on humanity's ever-changing map."
