CGCs: The Future of Globalization

Nov 16, 2017 10:30:00 AM / by Irene Kanthan

Connecting Global Cities” is a monthly column written by Colin Speakman, Resident Director for CAPA Shanghai.

---

Globalization has been a theme of this column on connecting global cities this year – and has featured more visibly in some months. This month seems to be the biggest one for this area because several globalization-related conferences have been happening and not at least one that is about to happen.

CAPA is hosting a Globalization Conference in London tomorrow which our students there will attend and other students in our European time zones will also be involved with in real time. Yet our students in more distant time zones will not be left out – they have already prepared insightful reflections in videos to be shown on the day. That includes videos of interviews I did with five CAPA students in Shanghai. I am sure we will return to the output of the conference once it has taken place.

Whether it was eating waffles, seeing Van Gogh’s paintings, or sitting on the bench from The Fault in Our Stars, the past week has been a wonderful opportunity to experience new sights outside of Dublin. The past few days I traveled to Brussels and Amsterdam over my fall break. My friends and I ate and wandered our way through these amazing cities.

We left early Friday morning for Brussels and once we arrived we immediately started to explore. As we turned a street corner and were met with a breathtaking view of the Grand Place, we stood and gazed up at the intricate gold designs in the architecture. The small figurine statues were patterned throughout the walls and shimmered in the early morning light.

Studying Abroad in London: A Global City and More

It might sound cliché but studying abroad in a global city gave me a new perspective on the world. I turned twenty years old the summer prior to studying abroad. With nothing but traveling on my mind, this birthday gave me the realization that I had gone two decades without making it overseas more than anything else. As a result, I had an endless amount of questions and curiosity only to be answered by traveling and experiencing a new country (or seven) first hand.

CAPAStudyAbroad_Fall2016_London_From Montana Ryzuk - Around the City.png

I chose to study abroad with CAPA in London, England, because of the internship program, which stood out as a once in a lifetime opportunity to me. Prior to departure, I tried to have the least amount of expectations as possible, as everyone advises you to do. Because of this, I never imagined how diverse of a city London would be. But better yet, I never imagined the global awareness and appreciation for other cultures I would gain from just four months in a foreign city.
