Globalization Conference 2012

From Global to Mobile

What is globalization? Globalization means the world is getting smaller, the forces of change are moving faster, and the poorest people on the planet are the most at risk. What can we do to resist destructive forces, and use the power and speed of globalization to create greater global harmony and intercultural exchange?

Join De Anza students and community partners for a day of exploration as we move from being globalized to mobilized!
