ACS Athens President Dr. Pelonis discusses the importance of cultivating conscious, responsible citizens
On Thursday, July 21, 2022, ACS Athens was proud to host the Ideagen EU Global Impact Summit in Athens in partnership with Ideagen Global and ALLILONnet to provide a global forum on the world’s most significant issues.
The summit highlighted the importance of creating a sustainable future from a personal and societal perspective through the unique insights of the summit’s distinguished guests, all coming from different professional sectors ranging from academia, finance, shipping, and media.
Topics were divided into three discussion panels that fostered cross-sector collaboration. The themes of these panel discussions were Maritime Strategy and Blue Economy in Greece, Agility 21: Skills and Mindsets for the 21st Century, and Achieving the UN Sustainability Goals by 2030: Insights, Strategies, and Implementation.
The world requires global citizens who can master knowledge and use it effectively and ethically toward a sustainable future.
The choices we make today will affect the future of generations to come and possibly even of planet earth. ACS Athens President Dr. Peggy Pelonis led the Agility 21: Skills and Mindsets for the 21st Century panel, which discussed sustainability issues from the perspectives of Education, Business, Finance, Entrepreneurship, Technology, and Media.
She stressed that ultimately today’s world requires global citizens who can master knowledge and use it effectively and ethically towards a sustainable future; to improve living and life on the planet.
Dr. Pelonis stated, "As educators, we must provide skills and knowledge to cultivate conscious and responsible citizens. Artificial Intelligence is advancing with extreme velocity. As we strive to keep up with these technological advances, we must always keep in mind the importance of nurturing and developing the human factor to ensure that young people make their decisions to sustain life as we know it through an ethical lens and create a better world”.
The Ideagen EU Global Impact Summit will be aired to a global audience on September 8, 2022, on Ideagen TV on LinkedIn Live.
