In this video, Prof Dr Josef Wieland, Dr Julika Baumann Montecinos and ZU student Melanie Weiser look back at the highlights of the Transcultural Leadership Summit 2020. They reflect on how the topic of the summit is related to current challenges and why it is important to deal with "New Silk Roads - New Perspectives for Europe?”.
In 2019 the Transcultural Leadership Summit focused on transcultural leadership and cooperation in and with Europe. Europe faces major economic, social and political challenges and transformations, not least within the frameworks of democratic societies, cross-border value creation, migration, and digitalization. The Corona pandemic further increased the relevance and poignancy of this development.
The 2-day conference programme was based on the work in progress of the Delphi study and aimed to take a closer look at those aspects which, according to the first findings of the study, are considered by the expert group to be particularly relevant for further discussions in the field. In panel discussions, keynote speeches and group sessions, the experts reflected on topics such as “Focus on Commonalities”, “Cultural Competence in the 21st Century”, “Leadership Implications” and “Trends in the Field”, and connected the study results to their particular fields of work and experience.
Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, individuals´ lives have been turned upside down: the imposition of new rules has thwarted human beings going about their usual everyday lives. The social sphere of the self has been particularly affected: social distancing and lockdown have become integral parts of a worldwide shared vernacular. A blogpost by Jessica Geraldo Schwengber.
On www.zu-daily.de our project manager Dr Julika Baumann Montecinos recently gave an interview on the concept of transculturality, which is the guiding concept for all of the Transcultural Caravan’s projects. Questions like "What exactly is transculturality?" or questions on the importance of transculturality are getting answered by Baumann Montecinos.
Like the three previous summits on China, Sub-Sahara Africa, and Brazil, this year’s summit, too, took place on the ZF campus of Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen. It attracted 200 visitors from all over the world. The organisation and realisation was in the hands of 20 ZU students under the project lead of Kirsti Grund and Laura Trattner.
