Ambassador Kennedy also made her first visit to the Salzburg Global Seminar (SGS), which celebrated its 75th anniversary this year. Since its founding in 1947 as a non-profit organization, the SGS has been dedicated to educating current and future leaders to better shape the world.
Ambassador Kennedy met there with students from the current Media Academy, who are grappling with the big questions of what the post-pandemic media landscape will likely look like. The Ambassador was enthusiastic about the possibilities of these exciting discussions in the beautiful surroundings of Schloss Leopoldskron.
