The Global Education Speakers Series is sponsored by the Global Education and Peace Network, and the Clark County Public Library. The theme of this year's series is "Think Globally, Act Locally."
The Global Education and Peace Network organized in response to Study Circles, which discussed reactions and responses to the events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001. The 12 programs in the 2007-08 series include issues of local and global importance, and give citizens an opportunity to consider their role in a democracy to build a better world.
