Contemporary Global Issues

Contemporary Global Issues 

Wish you were better informed about contemporary global issues? You will be if you join our discussion group. The group meets the second Tuesday of each month at 9:30 am. Location: Bayview, a hedge-hidden, trustee-run, resource for educators at 920 Sylvan Ave., Bridgeport. 

One of our members acts as a discussion leader at each meeting. We use a briefing book published by the Foreign Policy Association called Great Decisions to focus our discussions. 

On September 11th this year, we will discuss “Cybersecurity”. How do we balance privacy with security?  Are messages we send ever secure? Facilitator will be Chris Ehlers.  

At our meeting on October 9th, Bobbie Schlig will lead a discussion on “Energy Geopolitics”. How can we promote a reasonable energy future in light of global warming? 

On November 13th will be a general discussion of the election results with future anticipation. 

December 11th will be a discussion featuring “Mexico”. Phyllis Wing will be the facilitator. 

In the past year this group has discussed Multilateralism, State of the Oceans, the Horn of Africa, Exit from Afghanistan and Iraq, and Germany’s Ascendancy. If you are interested in joining the group, contact 

Merrillyn Decker, Chairwoman, (H) (203) 268-5013 or <>
