Take a chance and be rewarded! This is an opportunity to be inspired by the best minds on everything from social justice and climate change to revolution and technology—from every corner of the globe! The 4-part series explores the horizon of major global ideas and issues alongside some of the most vibrant thinkers, writers, and doers of today.  

The Series began in 2000 in celebration of the World Affairs Council of Oregon’s 50th anniversary. Past speakers have included His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Shaun King, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Madeleine Albright, Desmond Tutu, Rick Steves, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bono, and Bill Moyers, among many others. Since its inception, the Series has become the nation’s premier speaker series presenting the people, ideas, and issues shaping our global future.
