The economy has turned rapidly global in the last thirty years, but cultural globalisation is lagging a long way behind and has suffered serious setbacks, as new wars driven by religious fundamentalism have demonstrated. This is linked to the way economic markets have plundered moral resources and ignored the diversity of cultural identities. Cultural and political cosmopolitanism will nevertheless be a powerful force in the future, and it can look back over a history of more than 2000 years. What speaks in favour and what against cosmopolitan thinking and practice, and what role does travel play in this? What kind of travelling reflects a cosmopolitan attitude? And what implications does this have for business ethics? The talk will seek to cast light on this and related issues.
This event offers women and men from the world of economics, politics and travel a platform to explore and debate the links between ethics and travel. Our aim is to build bridges between philosophers, entrepreneurs, and the general public, paving new roads to success for all concerned. In this interdisciplinary, intercultural context, you will have an opportunity to listen to pioneering spirits or to present your innovative company.
By coming together, all our participants will play their part in a global renaissance which combines an ethical impact with economic viability.
The conference is open to anyone interested, admission is free. We look forward to meeting you.
