Hosting meaningful discussions on current affairs

At the World Affairs Council of Maine, we create the space for the exchange of knowledge and ideas on today's pressing global topics. Attend a presentation, or join lunchtime and after-hours discussions on a range of cross-cultural and international issues. We invite you to join our next event.

Supporting Mainers to become global citizens

Our goal is to provide educational opportunities to Maine people of all ages. Through our WorldQuest program, high schoolers get to compete on their knowledge of global affairs, while our Great Decisions courses at the Osher Lifelong Institute provides the opportunity to study the multifaceted issues in an academic setting.

Building relationships through global connections

We believe that relationships and community are key components of global citizenship. We create opportunities for friendship through our monthly discussion groups. Our IVLP program and Know Your Neighbor lunch series build community between Mainers, new Mainers, and rising leaders from around the world.

The World Affairs Council of Maine is proud to be an independent and 
nonpartisan organization that promotes civil discourse, awareness, and candor 
through informed conversations about complex global issues.
