For Philadelphia to thrive on an international level, citizens of all ages need to better understand the world around them and the interconnectedness of their places within it. Currently, many organizations are leading the effort to create such globally-minded citizens through international affairs education at primary and secondary schools, and through public dialogue about matters of national and international significance. Hosted by FPRI’s Ron Granieri, this interactive “town hall” will explore the work being done now – and that which must be done – to ensure that Philadelphia takes its rightful place on the world stage. To address these issues, we are proud to feature representatives of the Foreign Policy Research Institute, the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, and the Global Philadelphia Association.

The Foreign Policy Research Institute, founded in 1955, is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to bringing the insights of scholarship to bear on the development of policies that advance U.S. national interests. In the tradition of our founder, Ambassador Robert Strausz-Hupé, Philadelphia-based FPRI embraces history and geography to illuminate foreign policy challenges facing the United States. more about FPRI »
