Dartmouth Live-Stream Event

Global Challenges

 This Summer OLLI at Dartmouth and OLLI at UVM are partnering for a unique live-streaming series!  The series is hosted at Dartmouth and UVM OLLI members have the opportunity to experience the talks via live web stream on the UVM Campus.

About the Series: The World Order that has been in place for decades is suddenly facing important challenges from all sides. Russia is flexing its muscles again, worrying NATO and the countries on its border. China is becoming militarily assertive, especially in the South China Sea. Britain is exiting the European Union, leaving it potentially weakened. Terrorism has become a de-stabilizing force globally – are nuclear weapons within their reach? Cyber-attacks are proliferating from many sources, threatening the security of nations. And the planet is warming, with many potential negative long-term effects on the way we live.

When you put 7 billion people on earth, there will always be critical challenges somewhere. But this time they are happening simultaneously and there is considerable uncertainty about how these challenges will work out and how the U.S. (and the world) should respond to create the most positive outcomes possible.

This lecture series probes the most important challenges in depth. In these sessions a different, prominent speaker will provide his/her insights into one of the challenges, framing the key issues and explaining U.S. policy options to deal most constructively with them.

Registration is required.
