Interdependence Day VIII (Berlin)

Friday, September 10, 2010 - 6:00pm

World Policy Journal is a proud media partner of
Interdependence Day VIII.

In a world where global interdependence is not simply an aspiration of idealists, but a brute fact of the forces that bind us together— global warming, financial capital, AIDS, telecommunications, crime, migration, and terrorism—many people still think in narrow, insular terms. Reality is global, but consciousness too often remains local — constrained by town and nation.

In reaction to the tragic events of September 11, 2001, a small group of scholars, civic and political leaders, and artists from a dozen nations met to design a program that might help raise consciousness around the realities and possibilities of interdependence. Their efforts evolved into Interdependence Day, which honors September 12 as a post-9/11 symbol of regeneration, and as a time to reflect on the range of global challenges we can solve only through acknowledging our interdependence.

Following seven successful Interdependence Day Celebrations and Forums-- starting in 2003 in Philadelphia, and continuing in Rome, Paris, Casablanca, Mexico City, Brussels and Istanbul-- the eighth annual Interdependence Day Celebration begins on September 10 in Berlin. Under the theme of Sustain/Ability, this year’s Interdependence Day Celebration and Forum will focus on the critical issue of climate change to examine the crisis of global warming and climate justice in the frame of interdependence. The roles of global cities, the arts, new technologies and the private sector will also be examined as key areas of discussion.
