Building bridges of understanding | Sheryl Winarick | TEDxDanubia
More people are displaced than ever before – currently 65 million. People have been migrating since biblical times; however, recent surges make us view migrants as a threat, challenging our culture and identity. Instead of hiding in the dark in fear, why not take a leap of faith? We are all looking for a home - someplace to belong and realize our full human potential. In her short talk about global migration, Sheryl Winarick makes her case about how and why we need to shift from approaching people as a threat or a liability to the possibility that everybody has something valuable to contribute. She argues that if expecting clear answers might not be the solution, then maybe it is time for us to redesign the very process of seeking solutions for the global issue of migrations.
