For better or worse, 2020 has changed us. Looking back, we can see the lessons we’ve learned about health, resilience, collaboration, and our shared journey as part of one global community.
In these unprecedented times, when no place on the planet is immune to the effects of climate change, food insecurity continues to devastate vulnerable communities, and gender and social inequality are still widespread, it is more important than ever to remain an engaged, informed, and active global citizen.
To harness this energy and provide an avenue to explore global challenges and how to solve them, Counterpart International is offering a virtual learning series open to the public: Counterpart’s Global Ambassador Speaker Series. This new series is designed to give you the opportunity to learn about challenges facing communities around the world, while also engaging with other globally-minded individuals.
Beginning in October 2020 and meeting quarterly, the Speaker Series will feature lively and timely discussions led by leaders in the international development sector about today’s pressing humanitarian issues. Using Counterpart’s programs as case studies, the series will provide you with insights into current global challenges and the ways in which people are coming together around the world to address them.
- Climate resiliency in Northern Hispaniola;
