THE RIPPLE EFFECT; GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP IN THE WAKE OF COVID-19

2020 is set to be the defining decade of our century, as the countdown ticks down to solving a range of pressing global issues. For its fifth edition, the Misk Global Forum focus on daily actions young people can implement from today that will perpetuate, permeate and develop exponentially – actions that have a positive Ripple Effect. We will explore the everyday transformation young people can lead to meet the challenge of change, and collectively shape our tomorrow.

START

Wherever we live and whoever we are, our day starts from the moment we wake up. In this sequence, we break down key habits to help us define our day from its beginning and identify areas of impact, ranging from the breakfast we eat to the amount of water we may use, and how we decide to commute.

WORK

Work is the second most common daily activity that an average person partakes in during their life, second only to sleep; an average person spends 13 years and two months at work. With work representing such a large portion of the average person’s life, it is crucial that the activity is utilized for positive impact.

PLAY

In our hectic, modern lives, many young people focus so heavily on work and family commitments that there never seems to be enough time for leisure, travelling and down-time. Moreover, COVID-19 has greatly disrupted and transformed how young people have fun, impacting those who depend on them, and their own mental health. It is fundamental to carve space within the daily routine for a balanced lifestyle, allowing for meaningful interactions and sustainable hobbies
