In this eight-week series, participants gather to discuss key foreign policy issues facing the world today. Led by volunteer moderators, participants will engage in moderated discussions with their fellow citizens. This year’s topics will include Mideast Realignment, Climate Technology and Competition, Science across Borders, US-China Trade Rivalry, NATO’s Future, Understanding Indonesia, High Seas Treaty, and Pandemic Preparedness. This year’s series will be held in person at the Aspen Meadows.
January 25 – Climate Technology and Competition
Will the United States and China, with other powerful countries following suit, approach current and future climate initiatives with an increased commitment to trade protectionism and nationalism, by various measures including trade restrictions? Or could a growing spirit of international accord develop to confront the “common enemy” of climate change?
Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, January 18, running through Thursday, March 7 in the Koch Building at the Aspen Institute.
Registration will open in November.
