Reflections on the first week of the 2016 Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Chnage 2016 Salzburg Academy on Media & Global Change students pose for a photo in Gosau, Austria.

Jordan Pailthorpe is a creative producer at the engagement lab at Emerson college and the producer of the 2016 Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change publication; he has summarized the reflections, highlights and key discussions of the first week of this year's migration-focused academy.

By the end of the three weeks we will produce a series of multimedia stories that articulate how our personal stories and human connections can enable us and others to be more inclusive, responsive, and understanding of migrants and the socio-political-cultural impacts of migration.
