“Global Trade and Politics: Managing Turbulence” discussion series @ Blue Hill Library
February 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until February 21, 2023
The Blue Hill Public Library will host a three-session discussion series in connection with the 36th Annual Camden Conference on three Tuesdays from 1 to 3 p.m.: February 7, February 14, and February 21. This three-session in-person/hybrid series is a component of the Camden Conference community events program, in connection with the Camden Conference, “Global Trade and Politics: Managing Turbulence” which runs from February 17-19.
Facilitated by Bob Sargent and D. Scott Miller, these three sessions are intended to help participants achieve the most from participating in the conference by working through a list of questions and reflections about the topics that the facilitators deem to be relevant and provocative.
There is a reading list on the 2023 Camden Conference webpage. You can find a list of starter questions curated by the facilitators here.
