About Us


Audiences, primarily of middle, secondary and university students as well as community members and government and business leaders, engage in conversation about world affairs. Whether it comes from asking questions in a lecture setting or having one-on-one conversation with visiting heads of state, people on all sides come away enriched.

Participate in discussions


Participants in SDWAC programs are changed by listening to speakers, traveling to another country as part of an exchange, being in a classroom to learn from a guest speaker or traveled teacher, or hosting international visitors. Resulting enrichment gives each one better knowledge with which to respond to challenges of the 21st century.
