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.
