World Affairs SeminarWAS 2023 — World Affairs Seminar

Peace through understanding


The World Affairs Seminar is an international youth initiative of Rotary International District 6270.  The vision is to bring better understanding of world problems to young people from around the globe, using current issues as a learning platform. In the course of this study, the WAS provides opportunities for participants to discuss issues with other young people from around the world. Emphasis is on promoting better understanding of the causes of international conflict.  The idea is if the causes are understood and solutions developed in a cooperative environment, problems are more likely to be solved peacefully.
