CMRubinWorld interviews Director General of the International Baccalaureate, Siva Kumari, about the global competencies needed and the solutions the IB has developed.

In a live interview with C. M. Rubin at the recent IB Heads World Conference, Kumari discusses the philosophy of the IB, her future vision, and how the IB curriculum is being used to promote global understanding and peace.

She explains that "Our children are growing up globally conscious more than ever and world events, as we know today, can have both immediate and trickle effects in other parts of this highly interconnected world. The IB’s founders, however, recognized the impact of international-mindedness from the beginning and, because we started with schools around the world 50 years ago, our organization has developed deep fluency in the practice of these concepts in schools around the world".
