We are so excited to begin a new nine-week course to learn about and discuss world events, stimulate thinking and rediscover the art of discourse.
The course is called Great Decisions, and it’s billed as America’s largest discussion program on world affairs.
Starting in June, our group will meet every second and fourth Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Sulzer Library (4455 N. Lincoln Ave). Join people across the country in a shared learning experience!
Dates include: June 13 & 27; July 11 & 25; Aug. 8 & 22; Sept 12 & 26; and Oct. 3.
The Foreign Policy Association provides background information and policy options and stimulates discussion on eight critical issues facing America today. The 2016 topics include:
- Middle East Alliances
- The Rise of ISIS
- The Future of Kurdistan
- The Koreas
- The United Nations
- Climate Change
- Cuba and the U.S.
Scholarships are available. Please email email@example.com if you or someone you know needs assistance.
The series is convened by the League of Women Voters, Alderman Ameya Pawar, Chicago Public Library and Forward Chicago.
Here’s the trailer for this year’s discussion topics. We hope you’ll join us!
