Join US on October 20th, 2016 at 9am ET/ 4pm JT for a live conversation about the 2016 US Elections.
**Join the live broadcast using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A29R2jrMUaI **

The 2016 US Presidential Election has been making dramatic headlines around the world. While elections are always important and often contentious, many feel that this election has been unprecedented in the extreme rhetoric and deep polarization of the political parties. Around the country and the world, people believe that the outcome of this election will shape the future of our individual lives, the United States as a country, and the rest of the world.

According to a survey conducted by Teaching Tolerance, the 2016 US Elections are “eliciting fear and anxiety…and disrupting opportunities to teach effectively about political campaigns and civic engagement.” At Global Nomads Group, we believe it is important to foster dialogue about difficult issues and we want to hear directly from youth about what you believe is at stake for you, your family, and your community as US citizens vote this November.

In this live broadcast event, we will tackle the question: How does the US election impact my life/my community as a young person? Student leaders from different parts of the United States and around the world will share their personal values and how they are experiencing the election. Additionally, we’ll be joined by a guest speaker, Adam Freelander, a video journalist at Quartz, who makes videos about politics, science, culture, and design. He’s covered breaking news on the video desk at The New York Times, and his work has been featured in Vanity Fair, the Awl, and the Huffington Post. This past summer, he covered both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions on Snapchat.

Fostering Dialogue & Understanding Amongst the World's Youth
Introduction

We, Global Nomads Group, are a collection of people committed to fostering dialogue and understanding among the worlds youth. 

Bridging culture gaps and shattering misconceptions, we work at the intersection of cultural exchange, international education, and conflict resolution.

We design and facilitate virtual exchange programs that connect young people focusing on one of three tracks: civic engagement, media literacy, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics)

 Since 1998, Global Nomads Group has reached approximately one million young people, on all 7 continents.  Each year, the regions in which we work vary slightly, as we seek to expand our programs, reach a greater diversity of young people, and provide opportunities to connect youth who otherwise would never meet.
