The World Affairs Council of Maine connects our state and the world by engaging and educating people of all ages to become global citizens.

Great Decisions Discussions

Great Decisions programs are small group discussions, over a meal, hosted by Council members in their homes. Each discussion centers on a current affairs topic, based on a Great Decisions briefing prepared by the Foreign Policy Association. These popular events offer socializing and discussion in an informal setting.

The World Affairs Council of Maine also offers Great Decisions courses
during the Spring and Fall sessions, for members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Southern Maine.
