Great Decisions 2020

The Edmonds Library will host a series of Great Decisions 2020 discussions beginning Wednesday, April 29, and continuing through June 17. Participation limited to the first 25 people who register.

The discussions will take place from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Plaza Room on the second floor of the Edmonds Library (access via the elevator in the library lobby). 

Participants receive a book containing eight briefing papers, one per topic. (NOTE: Participants will be notified by email when the briefing book is available to be picked up at the library.) This is not a lecture series, but a chance to discuss with other citizens some of the current issues that we face as a nation. Occasionally, there may be a guest with expertise on the topic borne of experience and/or training, but even then the emphasis will be on discussion not lecture.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Climate Change
  • India and Pakistan
  • Red Sea Security
  • Human Trafficking
  • The Northern Triangle of Central America
  • China in Latin America
  • The Philippines
  • Artificial Intelligence and Data

Great Decisions is an annual series of informal discussions on critical global issues facing the United States produced by the Foreign Policy Association. These grassroots, face-to-face discussions among citizen-participation started in the 1950s and have grown to involve tens of thousands of citizens taking part in discussions nationwide annually.
