  • Globalization Young people in a Global World
  • Introduction
    • With this work we intend to make you more aware about nowadays’ phenomenon known as Globalization.
    • But we will more concretely approach the subject of Young People in a Global World.
  • What is globalization?
    • Globalization is an economic and social process;
    • It establishes integration between countries and people from all around the world.
    • Through this process, people, governments and companies:
      • switch ideas;
      • build financial and commercial transactions ;
      • spread cultural aspects through the entire planet.
  • What is globalization?
    • The concept of “Global Village” fits in this context, since it’s related with the creation of a connection network, which makes distances even shorter, making the cultural and economic relations easier, more efficient and faster.
  • “ Global Village”
    • - Basically constituted in the end of 1996
    • - It develops, among other activities, actions for its development, such as:
      • Protection and promotion of the human rights;
      • International Interchange of young people;
      • Actions of information, spreading and sensitization of public opinion;
      • Collaboration in the emergency humanitarian aid assistance;
      • Participation in promotion shares of the people’s auto determination.
  • Globalization Facts
    • The development of telecommunication improves the exchange of the huge diversity of cultures, beliefs, ways of life, people’s experiences from all around the world, and the international economic relations.
    • The unlimited numbers of communication possibilities based on Telecommunication are the source of the globalization process and the extending of ideals and debating cultural needs.
  • Globalization Facts
    • Globalization helped to increase the cultures proximity and to make the world a smaller place.
    • When the access to information becomes a will instead of a way, the individual may become detached from knowledge and will, which is possible to achieve with study, and a more crucial and deeper knowledge.
    • For many people, the participation in the “Global Village” is a distant reality due to unequal access to methods and technology services clogged by society.
  • Young people in a Global World
    • Globalization can bring countless advantages to young people, such as:
    • - better access to knowledge;
    • - communication with other young people from all around the world;
    • - a chance to finish racism and xenophobia.
  • Young people in a Global World
    • When people have the chance to communicate with each other, they:
    • - can also understand other cultures better;
    • - become more tolerant and more open to what surrounds them.
    • Interchanges among students from schools from all around the world:
      • - is also made easier;
      • - give young people the chance to switch ideas and socialize with other cultures face to face.
  • Conclusion
    • With this assignment, we can conclude that globalization may have negative results, but at the same time, and in a bigger proportion, it presents positive results to nowadays’ youth population.
