New Virtual Programming Series Brings the World to Pittsburgh
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted our profound connections through humanity while reminding us of the persistent injustices that continue to live in our world and in Pittsburgh. Following the Council’s established tradition in presenting innovative programs and activities on global issues, we are launching virtual events to be a platform for diverse audiences and speakers to come together and build stronger, more resilient connections that transcend all communities so that as we move forward, we will be stronger together.
The Emerging Global Leaders Seminar was a free 6-part virtual series designed and facilitated by high school students to create a space for young people to understand and think critically about the pandemic’s impact on their world—and the various issues, intersections, and perspectives within it. Through the series students will connect with peers and experts, strengthen their understanding of the overarching global impacts of the pandemic and how these issues shape the world around them, and learn how to take meaningful and informed action as youth to build our world back better.
