Kristofer Gilmour

Kris is in his final year of a BA in International Relations with a BSc in Geography at Macquarie University. He is curious about people and wants to understand the ways we interact with each other around the world. Kris wants to find the answers to questions like; what impact public spaces have on our behaviour? Why do we fear what we don’t understand? How do we design cities to encourage trust and social well being? Having studied abroad in India, France and the Czech Republic where he has gathered observations about how culture is created, Kris sees that the world is moving away from nationhood and that we need to learn the power we can muster when we work for diversity. Kris is keen to contribute to the world in a way that celebrates intercultural community building through education, planning and innovation.
