- will use the sub-categories of the 7 Revolutions of the Global Engagement Initiative as a framework for building these connections
7 Revolutions Project becomes Global Engagement Initiative
Several years ago The New York Times and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) joined [American Associate of State Colleges and Universities] AASCU’s American Democracy Project to create what became known as “The Seven Revolutions Project.”
The name of the project emanated from a framework developed by Erik Peterson, who consulted with other leading policy analysts within CSIS and identified the seven global forces (“revolutions”) expected to most impact the world in the next 20-25 years.
These revolutions include 1) population, 2) resource management, 3) technology, 4) information, 5) economics, 6) conflict, and 7) governance. And for revolutions not otherwise mentioned, we have random.
Faculty from 10 AASCU institutions (“Seven Revolutions Scholars”) decided to use the seven revolutions framework to develop curriculum with the goal of educating globally competent citizens at AASCU institutions.
