“To promote the widest possible understanding of world affairs among the citizens of New Hampshire”
Who We Are:
The World Affairs Council of New Hampshire is the state’s only non-profit, non-partisan organization devoted solely to fostering learning, discussion and citizen involvement in world affairs by providing programs for the public, hosting international visitors and enriching global education in our schools. The Council is also the only Granite State member of the World Affairs Councils of America and the National Council for International Visitors.
The Council is supported financially by memberships, program fees, donations from individuals and businesses, grants, a small endowment, and Southern New Hampshire University, which provides office space and other services.
