Culture and society in the context of Globalisation

Because we are closer than ever to each other we need to be more aware and understand the cultural background of our friends, neighbours or co-workers. Because of the rapid pace of globalisation the planet is growing smaller and smaller. 

We are now over 7 bilion people and it is estimated that by 2050 the world population will reach between 8.3 and 10.9 billion. This means that we will be a lot of people each with our own different social, ethnical and religious backgroung living on the same (now smaller) planet. Understanding and accepting each other will be crucial! We usually tend to fear what we don't understand, so make an effort and read about different relegions, understand the cultural background of different ethnic groups and you will see that we are not that different!

Cultural diversity will be somthing that will define our world in the years to come and also somthing that will make it unique and special. So we should celebrate and embrace diversity and the cultural richness of our society!
