By: Sophia Pelka (Star) Apr 5, 12

Parag Khanna is a highly engaging speaker, geographic specialist and author. His engaging presentation introduces his ideology on enforcing the next renaissance. Referencing his book, ‘How to Run The World: Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance’ he discusses the multi-polar and multi-civilizational parallels between the modern world and the middle ages. While the middle ages lacked the technology of today, a myriad of commonalities can be reflected upon. There have been private actors and overlapping powers all with competing policies.

He discusses the chaos of the international world. He argues that we are in fact coming out of a dark age, and that our generation will also move into a Renaissance type of revolution. He believes that ‘mega-diplomacy’ will occur, with collaborations between major philanthropists, engineers, technology geniuses and activists will have to power to change the global mindset.
