Great Decisions Discussion Program

"Wow, what a treat. It was a real surprise and wonderful opportunity to be a part of what was truly a "Great Discussion". So glad I had the opportunity to participate. " Arnold D. 

  • Do you like to keep up on current events? 
  • Do you want to meet new people?
  • Would you like to stretch your mind, point of view and expertise?

Then Great Decisions is just the program for you!

Created by the Foreign Policy Association of America (FPA) in 1954, Great Decisions Discussion Program is America’s largest grassroots discussion program that focuses on world affairs. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book and meeting in a group setting to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. Discussing the topics with other members plays vital role in your learning and understanding of these issues and everyone benefits from hearing different points of view.

The topics for the 2024 program are:

    • Middle East Realignment
    • Climate Technology and Competition
    • Science Across Borders
    • U.S.-China Trade Rivalry
    • NATO's Future
    • Understanding Indonesia
    • High Seas Treaty
    • Pandemic Preparedness

Registration is open for WACHH members only.

    2024 Great Decisions Briefing Book
