About Shrinking Borders

The vision for Shrinking Borders is to make the world a smaller place by:

  • Expanding horizons – sharing information and insight, consulting, teaching and learning from others.
  • Inspiring connections – facilitating personal relationships, especially between people from different countries, traditions, and experiences.  Regardless of ethnicity, religion, or politics – we have common interests.
  • Challenging boundaries – the global reality is that lines in the sand, or on the map, have less and less meaning.  The challenges we face transcend borders, so must the efforts to address them.
