Symposium + Summit 2018

Let’s rethink and shape


the world we share!


What is the Transcultural Caravan?

We believe that tolerance and a willingness to resolve conflict is necessary but not sufficient to meet twenty-first century’s economic, political, cultural, and other challenges. What we need is a new type of leadership and the capacity to cooperate as well as to define globally shared interests and values!

Therefore, we have designed an extraordinary project encouraging research, a worldwide dialogue, and the spread of sustainable ideas for our common future: the Transcultural Caravan a hub of global thinking.
