Join the Yale International Alliance’s Virtual Series on Global Citizenship, starting June 27 at 10 a.m. EDT. The series begins with a Spotlight Q&A from Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, UK followed by Local Voices, Global Insights: Governance in Times of Crises: How can global citizens ensure that government works for all? Governments around the world may differ in their structures, freedoms, and resources, but the need for civic engagement by individuals and organizations is nearly universal. In this panel discussion, experts in politics and governance will discuss the role of each citizen in promoting inclusive and accountable government that operates in the public interest and establishing constructive political norms today and for future generations.
