Wade Davis: Cultures at the far edge of the world
In the TED talk Davis chronicles the need for a new imaginary for the conservation of cultural heritage around the world and the understanding of our shared "ethnosphere" essential for the 21st century.
This ePortfolio struck me deep in the heart and inspired me beyond my expectations for our project. At the Institute for Global Civic Culture we are committed to providing a framework for creating a new imaginary for cultural heritage conservation around the world. We applaud our first Global Civ fellow and his construction of meaning to this end. His is critical work shows a careful and enduring understanding of the world and a passion for the world. This is the mission of the Institute for Global Civic Culture and Global Civ.
Please look for more information about Global Civ and our announcement of program expansion for the 2011-2012 year.
Wade Davis has a Massey Lecture on Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World.
