WORLD IN MOTION
Global migration is the mega trend of the 21st century. With more than 230 million migrants in the world today, people are moving in search of a better life or to build a better home.
Whether they’re moving to new jobs or because their homes are in conflict zones, what consequences may this have on the place they arrive at and the ones they leave?
Join us as we explore the world in motion on Future Forward, Tuesday at 8pm on Channel NewsAsia.
BEHIND THE SCENES
This is my second programme for this season and of 2015. This episode about global migration hits close to home. A global citizen myself, I’m passionate about stories of people moving around the world experiencing and adapting to different cultures. Regardless of whether it’s for economic reasons or forced migration, moving to a new country strengthens the individual and enriches their life experience, particularly for the courageous people who risk it all for a better life.
Research: Future Forward looks at new perspectives about where the world is heading. With more than 230 million people on the move today, looking at the impact and consequences this floating population will have in the world is essential to this episode.
Interviews: There is no Future Forward story without thought leader views and expert opinions. In this episode, my thought leader was Professor Walter Woon, a law professor from the National University of Singapore.
In this episode we gain first hand insights of multiculturalism in Europe from Prof Woon’s past experience as the Ambassador to the EU.
Along with Prof Woon, we heard from Dr Kevin McGahan from NUS, Joe Lowry from the International Organisation for Migration and Michel Anglade from Save the Children.
Editing: As it has been done in previous episodes, video editing is done at an external post production house – editlounge @ Tanjong Pagar.
