October 13, 2022
World Forestry Center

This day-long public summit explores emergent best practices around:

  • civic engagement and global citizenship; 
  • the social and economic values of education and global exchange;
  • and natural resources, the environment, and trade in maximizing cultural and economic advantage. 

The summit, featuring experts and influencers from across the country, offers a dynamic array of keynote talks, panel discussions, and workshops (with a special track for high-school students) that spotlights how each of these components contributes to diplomacy and the building of a more prosperous, resilient, and vibrant democracy.

In addition to the day-long public summit, the event will also feature a day of Learning Labs — tailored workshops for international visitor network professionals that focus on topics relevant to exchange programming, nonprofit management, and professional development.

The Diplomacy Begins Here Regional Summits and Learning Labs are sponsored by the U.S. Department of State with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by Global Ties U.S.
