(22 July 2017) Public diplomacy in education at the state and local levels will be the focus of the next First Monday Forum. The event takes place on Monday, 7 August, beginning at 12:00 noon, at American Foreign Service Association in Washington, D.C.

While public diplomacy is planned and funded by nations, its actual practice is often carried out by states and localities, particularly in the schools. The discussion will be led by Phil Noble, a technology entrepreneur and civic sector activist, as well as fellow at the Institute of Politics of the John F. Kennedy School of Government of Harvard University. He also serves on various advisory and editorial boards at ten other colleges and universities in the U.S. and internationally.

Monday forums are a joint project of the USC Center on Public Diplomacy, USC Annenberg Center on Communication Leadership and Policy, and Public Diplomacy Council. The event takes place on Monday, 7 August 2017, and begins at 12:00 pm at AFSA headquarters, 2101 E Street NW, Washington DC (Foggy Bottom metro). Sandwiches and refreshments will be served.

The event is free, but advance registrations by e-mail are required: FirstMondayForum.RSVP@gmail.com.
