Great Decisions

I just wanted to let anyone who is interested know about Great Decisions from the Foreign Policy Association.I have been involved for a few years, but now am returning to college so porobably can't participate. I found it really interesting. t runs from February through to March meeting once a week, they say it is still not too late to get a group together in Switzerland. they discuss anything from global warming to economics.

Some of the discussions are held at some of the top universities, some at the local library. the people is my group were mostly elderley from different walks of life, different careers, different political parties, but all interesting. It does't cost anything perhaps just $18 for the book, but you can just show up, no need to even buy the book, you don't have to be American.

So I asked the HQ if Great Decisions ran in Switzerland they said that there was one previously in Geneva and that they would truly welcome anyone who wants to restart it.

So here's the info and an example of the discussions if anyone is interested.
