Edina Great Decisions: Climate Technology and Competition
February 12 @ 4:00 pm CST/ Free
Will the U.S. and other leading countries approach climate initiatives with an increased commitment to trade protectionism and nationalism? Or could a growing spirit of international accord develop to confront the common concern of climate change?
This program is presented by Edina Community Ed through a partnership with the Edina Senior Center, the Edina Library, and Edina Community Center.
The Great Decisions program addresses some of the most critical foreign policy issues facing the United States each year. Global Minnesota facilitates the statewide Great Decisions program by providing access to a roster of local foreign policy experts and to discussion materials produced by the Foreign Policy Association.
