What's Going on in the World Today?

Let's be honest for a minute. As a society, Americans aren't as up to speed on what is happening in the rest of the world, and what our role is, as some other countries. In fact, the issues out there today can seem slightly overwhelming to tackle. 

If you're looking for a place to start, why not come to one of our upcoming Great Decisions nights at the Columbine or Evergreen Libraries. This popular foreign policy discussion group is perfect for those who are interested in learning more about current events. 

Each program is presented in a balanced and non-partisan way, and includes background information, current data and policy options for each issue. Topics include:

  • Defense Technology 
  • Israel and the U.S. 
  • Turkey’s Challenges 
  • Islamic Awakening
  • Energy Independence
  • Food and Climate 
  • China’s Foreign Policy 
  • U.S. Trade Policy 

Sessions at the Columbine Library begin with a planning meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27 and continue on select Mondays through May 19. The Evergreen Library will host the program beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19. It will continue through Monday, May 5.

Exact date information 

Meetings are open to anyone who would like to attend.
