The first World Affairs Councils of America were created in 1918 with the mission to educate Americans on global issues. Over 100 years later, we are carrying on that work. In the 21st century, the world has become more interconnected than ever before. Technology and the global market continue to weave together the international fabric. With popular media often concentrating more on domestic issues than international affairs, SWAC hopes to enlighten and engage the Sarasota community about events unfolding in our world.
Please join us!
