Who We Are

With an emphasis on community engagement and collaboration, the Council creates experiences that explore critical global issues and promote a greater understanding of the world.

What We Do

The World Affairs Council of Connecticut hosts programs and discussions on critical international issues that impact the local community and the world at large. The Council also works with Connecticut schools to provide programs for students and educators that increase awareness of our world and the challenges facing us as global citizens.

Our History

Founded in 1924, the Council is part of the World Affairs Councils of America, the largest international affairs non-profit in the United States. Since its creation, CTWAC has been engaged in a constant campaign to promote greater knowledge and understanding of international affairs among Connecticut residents.
