World Leaders Forum featuring Jan Eliasson:
Global Leadership in the 21st Century
Undergraduate and Graduate Student Workshops
Learn how to affect change in your community and in the world
November 29, 2017 · 1:30 – 3:00 PM
We live at an exciting time: most of the assumptions that underpinned the post war and then the post-Cold War world seem to be changing. Societies and their leaders have to cope with, but also try to shape a new world. Arguably a new kind of leadership is also needed, which is one of the driving forces behind the Tällberg Foundation leadership initiative. The World Leaders Forum featured a conversation about the demands facing great leaders among the 2017 Tällberg Global Leaders, and a conversation about the world today between former UN Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson and Columbia University’s Vishakha Desai.
