The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia has offered tours to its members and to Cooperating Councils—such as WACNO—for more than 20 years.
The Speakers Program provides an opportunity to hear distinguished diplomats, journalists, scholars, and business and military leaders speaking on international issues in the news.
Join us for this casual, Dutch-treat event, where our members have the chance to get to know one another and discover the many interests–cultural, linguistic, geographic, civic, professional, academic–that they have in common.
K-12 Outreach Program
WACNO has been developing a new K-12 Outreach Program in order to provide New Orleans area students with community-based educational programs that will help them develop into internationally-minded citizens and leaders.
Great Decisions supports the creation of a more informed, engaged citizenry by bringing people together to talk about global affairs. Each meeting, our facilitator will give an overview of the topic and lead a balanced, yet thought-provoking, discussion.
Join us at Dining Internationally, where WACNO foodies meet and mingle at an ethnic eatery to sample the cuisine and listen to the chef, who dishes about the culinary culture of the country represented by the restaurant.
