Vikas Swarup

The University of Guelph’s Global Thought Leader in Residence Vikas Swarup will deliver a public lecture next week titled “Global Citizens in Uncertain Times.”

All are welcome to attend.


Swarup will discuss the imperative of global citizenship at a time when the world is more integrated but also more fragmented than ever before.

His talk will emphasize the need for citizens with a global outlook as well as examine the necessary attributes of a global citizen.

“We need citizens with a global outlook because the vast majority of challenges facing the world can only be solved by countries working together,” says Swarup.
