Back to the roots: Embracing cultural diversity
What does “home” mean when we live in a place that’s culturally different from where our parents originated? And what impact does it have on our lives?
Tatjana’s talk is inspired by the social phenomenon of cross cultural kids – children who have lived and interacted with two or more cultural environments during the first 18 years of life. She notes the unique joys and challenges of transitioning between cultures, pairing this with her own upbringing as a Serbian being born and raised in Germany.
What are the challenges in an increasingly mobile world where diversity is getting bigger and bigger? And might we need to rethink our perception of “where home is”? This is what Tatjana set out to explore in her talk.
