In Case You Missed…

‘CxC: Amplified’ Initiative!
Putting the World Back Together
An ideas summit presented by World Affairs Councils nationwide

CxC: Amplified was a full week of ideas designed to amplify voices on foreign and national policy, Council by Council, and coast to coast. The Ideas Summit brought together leaders, experts, and citizens across the nation to tackle the central question: How will the world be put back together as we chart our way through the new circumstances caused by this coronavirus pandemic?

Virtual programming is dedicated to discussing the personal and professional, economic and foreign policy, and local and global impacts of COVID-19.
