Chapter Two: Cultural Globalization

VII. Organizational and Commercial Trends Towards Cultural Globalization:

Important as they may be, nationality and language are far from being the only influences on the cultural mind-set of an individual in the 21st century.

Travel has already been mentioned. Among the other fields which are likely to contribute to the process of cultural globalization are education, health (including charity) and sport. The remainder of this chaper consists of descriptions of some of the more prominent international organizations working in these fields, along with some general remarks to begin each sub-section.

All of the organizations mentioned are described in comparable or greater detail in Appendix 1.
