World Affairs Speakers Scheduled
We have now gathered enough World Affairs Council events to place them in the 360 North schedule as a series. Beginning this Monday, January 14, World Affairs council lectures will run weekly.
The first episode highlights Frank Ruddy discussing the issues of Western Sahara. The lecture was presented to an audience of Alaskans in Juneau who participated in a question and answer session with Ruddy.
This week 360 North recorded another event including Ian Williams titled "An Insider's Critique of the U.N." The other speakers highlighted during the first month are Gerard Baker - "US European Economic Relations" and Ambassador Said T. Jawad - "Beyond the Headlines, Afghanistan's Stability and Global Security."
The program airing this coming Monday (1/14) will begin at 9:30 pm. Subsequent Monday night World Affairs Council programs will begin at 9:00 pm or 9:30 pm depending on the length of the lectures and the Science for Alaska programs that air the same evening.
This is another new series created specifically for 360 North. We are actively looking for an underwriter to sponsor production costs for future World Affairs Council and other events and lectures so we can continue to bring our audience these new programs.
