World Events Discussion Group 2 focuses exclusively on international*** current events and related background issues. Members seek to broaden their knowledge and understanding about all regions of the world in a friendly, informal atmosphere.

Each member volunteers twice a year to facilitate the first hour of the meeting. Several days beforehand, this volunteer selects a recent world news event and advises the group of it by e-mail, including a couple of relevant articles or links to same and some questions for consideration. Then in the first hour, she/he gives a brief (20 minutes) introduction to the topic and opens it up for all to discuss. In the second hour, several other world events of the past couple of weeks are presented (up to 5 minutes each) by other members, again followed by lively discussion.

Recent topics explored include the Upcoming US presidential election, International trade agreements (e.g., TPP), Climate change, the Middle East wars, the related refugee crisis, Brexit and uncertainty in the EU, Brazil’s turmoil, Myanmar elections, Chinese expansion, and Europe: the rise of extreme right-wing parties.

Facilitated by David Sheridan.

*World Events Discussion Group 1, similar in nature, meets twice a month on Mondays. For more information, click here
