Has your ocean of summer reading inspired stories of your own? Add your voice the Waterfall of Stories interactive display, a collaboration between Poudre Libraries and the Community Literacy Center's Fort Collins Story Project.

Great Decisions: Myanmar and ASEAN

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Old Town Library
Large Meeting Room Combo


The situation in Myanmar, including the coup by the military in February 2021 and the ongoing human rights crises, coupled with civil resistance by those opposed to the regime, has led to chaos in the Southeast Asian country. How are neighboring countries reacting, and what role will ASEAN play?

The ideological divide in the United States on the subject of climate change has impeded progress in curbing greenhouse emissions. But extreme weather events at both ends of the thermometer have focused attention on the consequences of inaction. What role will the United States play in future negotiations on climate? 

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs.  The program model involves reading the Great Decisions briefing book, watching the video and meeting in a discussion group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. Full program info is available at https://blog.poudrelibraries.org/great-decisions/  
  
Based on the Foreign Policy Association program information. More about the Foreign Policy Association program is at http://www.fpa.org/great_decisions/
