Young people that have the motivation and ambition to make a difference – be that in politics, business, NGOs or academia – will need to have a clear understanding of three basic perspectives:
Where is our society going?
What role can, what role should politics play?
What are the risks and opportunities modern
Tomorrow’s leaders need to get the broader picture and creatively apply a broad knowledge of social sciences with good methodological skills to help solve the problems we are facing today. They need to be aware of the digital and global context
of contemporary challenges to find new, creative paths on a micro-, meso- and macro level of development.
They need to see both the systemic and the cultural components of the crises and conflicts we are challenged with. And they should be equipped not only with a good analytic understanding of modern media, but also with the skills to produce media products, themselves, should this interest them.
