Great Decisions Discussion GroupThursday May 7, 2020
1:30 PM until 3:00 PM
START DATE POSTPONED! New Dates TBD.
In an abundance of caution, and following the recommendations from leading health officials to encourage 'social distancing' to help reduce the transmission of Covid-19, the Attleboro Public Library is cancelling and/or postponing all group events and meetings indefinitely. The Library shall re-evaluate this decision moving forward based upon any new developments that occur over the next few weeks.
Join us for a civil discussion of 8 timely topics for 2020 --
- Climate Change and the Global Order - April 2
- India and Pakistan - April 9
- Red Sea Security - April 16
- Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking - April 23
- U.S. Relations with the Northern Triangle - April 30
- China's Road into Latin America - May 7
- The Philippines and the U.S. - May 14
- Artificial Intelligence and Data - May 21
No prior knowledge or expertise is required to join the conversation. The only requirement is to read the topic overview in the Great Decisions Briefing Book prior to the weekly meeting. Each session will begin with a viewing of a 20 minute DVD that provides an overview of the topic to be discussed.
Learn more about this year's topics and the Great Decisions program by visiting the Foreign Policy Association's website.
Registration is required for this program. There is a $32 materials fee payable when you pick up your briefing book prior to the first session, or feel free to order your own copy via the FPA website. The 2020 edition will be available beginning in January. A Reference Copy is available for in-library use for participants who do not wish to purchase their own copy.
