On Intercultural Exchange and Education - A Conversation with Till Kraemer
In this episode, I speak with Till Kraemer, who is a mathematician turned social entrepreneur, and is the co-founder general manager of the organisation ICE (Inter Cultural Education) based in Hong Kong. Till has a fascinating love of the world and intercultural exchanges, and he approaches all aspects of life with a curious eye. This approach is embedded in the foundation of the ICE organisation and in our discussion, Till shares a number of stories of the impact that these kinds of exchanges have not only had on him, but also the students and members of the community.
Till shared with us his favourite podcast Dear Hank and John which addresses a variety of topics through two lenses: science and philosophy. He also recommended their YouTube channel, Vlogbrothers. A book that particularly made an impact in Till’s life as a teenager was Roger Penroses's The Emperor's New Mind. A YouTube channel that he absolutely recommends is Geography Now which offers bite-sized engaging history and geography lessons about each country in the alphabet.
