Imagine a future shaped less by national borders than by global supply chains, a world in which the most connected powers – and people – will win.
Connectivity has never been a greater driving force of change than in this current century, where transportation, energy and communications infrastructure play a paramount role in linking the world’s cities into one global civilisation.
As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, the role of submarine cables has never been more crucial than the present. At the same time, how will the growth in connectivity affect the global geopolitical, economic and social environment?
Connectography – Mapping the future of global civilization
Hear from leading global strategist and best-selling author Parag Khanna (Managing Partner, Hybrid Reality) as he shares his vision of a connected global civilisation and the implications that come with it. Drawing from key learnings in his latest book “Connectography – Mapping the future of global civilization”, Parag will discuss the following in his opening keynote address at Submarine Networks World 2016:
- Serving the needs of a connected global population – what will they expect?
- How will the Internet look like in 2020?
- How is it driving the movement towards a “borderless world”? Will we see a world of global netizens in the future vs citizens of nations?
- The Internet’s role in influencing today’s geopolitical relationships
Learn how the industry will fit into the bigger picture of our evolving global infrastructure and join in the discussion, taking place this 17-19 October at the 19th Submarine Networks World.
