To unite a divided world.
We strive to foster intercultural dialogue and active global citizenship in youth communities worldwide.
New Global Normal is a non-partisan, youth-led, action-based international movement formed amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. The movement strives to promote meaningful communication, understanding and cooperation across cultural divides.
Our lives were disrupted in 2020 as escalating populism and localism collided with a disastrous global pandemic. Heightened levels of xenophobia exposed the harmful ideological rhetoric and cultural misunderstandings that clouds personal and political relationships between individuals of different cultural backgrounds and experiences.
Yet the pandemic has also birthed a newfound attention to our strength as a global community. When we work together and celebrate our diversity, we are stronger as a human race. We seek to harness this positive energy to create a new global normal, where global cooperation is commonplace and we all understand our place as members of a thriving global community.
Investing in engagement is investing in peace.
